Thumbs down Soft Cover

Guys,

When you ordered your ba ute, with the hard cover as the option, did you get your softcover as well ?

My dealer said they get held at the factory, I think its a little sus

Any ideas / comments ?

Re: Soft Cover

when you order the hard top from the dealer with your ute. they say the price your given for the hardtop includes a trade in price for your tarp and bars ...

Re: Soft Cover

No softtop for my Pursuit! I've got a hardtop sitting in the garage roof though.

i picked up my ute with the soft cover.. had to wait 5 weeks while the hard top was on back order..
as it turned out, it rocked u only after 2 weeks!!
was rapped

anyways, i cant fit it so its pretty much usless to me as ive got the little plugs in the clip holes.

so if anyone is after a tarp, i have one here with the two bars that support it!
cost? maybe a few pots at the pub!

cheers

Teza

Re: Soft Cover

Ahh Illusive, they are the holden utes, they have a small erm chamber (best way I can explain it) that the cover clips into, much neater than the fords version in my eyes.. ;(

My understanding is that the Hard Lid is not fitted at the factory, even if you ordered your ute with the lid. It's fitted by the dealer.
Accordingly they receive the soft tonneu and must give same to you.

The only lids fitted on the line are the Pursuit Utes.

Check with the dealer as to who fitted it when..
