    Thanks, I'll look out for that, and I'll check back on your build for your other tips on the softopper.

    UPS delivered my FREE Warn emergency kit today :D
    Pretty cool. Has a little emergency food and water, rain ponchos, survival blankets, plus first aid stuff, a multi tool, hand sanitizer, a flashlight, matches etc.

    The only thing I got from Icon was the 3 leaf mini pack, and I don't think it came with any decals. There is an Icon rep that is pretty active here on TW. He might be able to hook you up with decals if you PM him.

    Thanks! :)

    Well apparently, my softopper has not shipped yet. Not sure why. I placed the order Sunday, and their website claims
    "Factory Direct - All models in stock
    Same day shipping right to your door!!!"
    So I figured it would ship out Monday and since i'm paying $80 for priority shipping to Hawaii, it would be here wed/Thursday, and I could install over the weekend. A little disappointed in their service so far...

    Just got an update from Bob at softopper. They were out of stock on the SB tacoma top, and got them in yesterday. Not a big deal, I just wish they informed me when I placed the order. I just can't wait to get it :D

    I just printed a few pics of the Branick coil spring compressor. I might just take my coil to work this week and make my own :D
    Of course it will be very over built ;)
    I even made my own air cushioned motorcycle lift out of aluminum when I had my supermoto.
    [​IMG]
    I made every piece except for the bolts. Even had pressed in oilite bushings!
    [​IMG]
    It had enough leverage that even my daughter, who was 6-7 years old at the time, could lift the bike.
    [​IMG]
    I miss that bike :( Don't miss the frontier tho...

    I wish I could TIG aluminum that nicely. My pipefitter friend welded it up for me.
