We've been working on this top for a while. We've sold a few and have used them on a few cars for thousands of miles. When on long road trips, we now use these all the time. It keeps the sun from beating down on you, but lets you get plenty of breeze. You also don't have the blind spots you get with a regular top. The ones on the shelf are black. Custom colors can be ordered, but will have a wait time as they will be made to order and will have an upcharge to cover ordering a small piece of material.
