    Need help picking a color for my soft top. Is black my only viable option? My interior is black.
    Choices are the following:
    Black canvas
    Khaki canvas
    Green canvas

    These are the colors that Ehsan has "in stock" so to speak. I know there are others available, but I don't want to wait a year.

    Feel free to post pics to make your case.

    The black canvas is more gray than black. If you want black, which would be my vote, I would go for the vinyl top. Also, if you live somewhere that it rains/snows, vinyl would be a be a better choice too. my 2cents. :)

    I have a black vinyl Bestop Supertop now, but I really want a canvas Paki top. Believe it or not, I do not drive my 40 during the winter or in the rain. There is a chance that I could get caught in a rain storm though.

    Green canvas would be my choice on my freeborn red 40.

    if you can't get grey, than khaki. black is way too common...makes it boring.
