A thanks and another question....

First off, a big thanks to all who replied with suggestions of how to clean dirt and mold off of an older top. Turns out a fixture of dry-foam upholstery cleaner with a tiny amount of bleach and a liberal application of elbow grease works best. Finish off with some plastic polish for the windows and you have 5 year old panels that look almost as good as brand new panels.
So, here's the next question. I need replacement upholstery for the bottom of the fold and tumble. Jeep has discontinued it. I know BesTop carries a replacement..... but it is all one color. The seats are the green/spice mix and I would like to stay with that. If not, any other suggestions? How is the quality of the BesTop? I've used their tops before, but never their covers. Any other vendors you know of or use.... Thanks again Wise Jeep Wizards....

Re: A thanks and another question....

I agree with Thor...I have the BestTop seats in front and while they are comfortable, they are not lasting as long as I would like....the outside spring is poking thru...it can't seem to handle my mass as I climb in and out.

I'm getting rid of my stock seat and will be installing to bucket seats in the back with 5 point harnesses for the boys.
