I'd have to do it if I went with CO. I loved that show.

Yeah, but no roof to put the confederate flag on.
Unless of course you went with the hardtop...

Eric Bostrom sporting the BossHog leathers last summer at Laguna Seca for the AMA superbike race. Too bad it was taken out by a Gixxer...

I wonder if I could screen print something onto the softop. What fabric does it come in and what do you think could be done to it?

Not a good idea, the paint will dry the fabric and reduce its age. Furthermore, dried fabric will crack instead of fold. Water beads on most new convertible tops and runs off instead of soaking right through. Painted fabric, old fabric and cracked fibres will prevent just that.

I'll give $50 to whoever can slide across the hood and:

1) not crack the clam

and...

2) get over the center hump
