    Bill Hines will build you one but you have to get it Padded and upholstered yourself. Then there is a Kat in Burbank who has a shop...Can't remember his name off hand but he does some bitchen work. Then you can try Kid Dean...Dick's son...He's still messin around with those i think.

    There is a website called oneofftech.com and they make them for $ 9,500. Makes mine on the 34 ( an oldy that I got for $300. ) look like a deal. But they do look nice. Tom

    You could try Gene Winfield, too... I think he may still do Carson style tops.
    (don't know his exact location)

    If that top was only $600 that looks like a steal!
