I see that he hasn't been on JF for 3 weeks, but a PM should send him an e-mail notification.

Also, sometimes a phone call will get more results than an e-mail. It is too easy for a lot of people to simply delete an e-mail....jus' sayin'!

Good luck!

A phone call is what did it for me, skipped over sending an email.

good thought... i believe there is some extra around the door handles and such.

I had mice eat a nice hole in mine years ago. Went to a local auto upholstery shop and they fixed it with a nice patch. I was out of pocket just $30 bucks. I could have patched it up myself for less, but if it leaked I could bring it back for them to fix free of charge. So it was a good deal.

Seems like everyday is a Monday.

i'll probably end up doing that too, there'a a ton of boat upholstery shops around here. i doubt they'd have black denim, but they can probably get close. the holes are on top so you wouldn't really see em anyway.

an update.. got a response from bestop. they don't offer "patches" but i asked if they had a sample piece of black demin they could send me to use. they're sending me some for free. i don't know how much material they're sending, but hopefully it's enough to do the 3 holes. i'll have a boat canvas shop do it. thumbs up to bestop though!
