    Considering a pace edward cover is almost the same money I wouldn't say it is a rip off. They look awesome... but if I didn't play hockey I would have taken the Speedsturr cover over my Pace Edwards any day.

    Just a friendly reminder. Make sure Kris talks to Klint before any payments are made. He needs to at least re-up as a vendor for a month.

    I'd be interested in a Speedsturr Lid with X2000 hinge. Planning on buying one anyways once i get my tax returns.

    One suggestion I have for you guys is to request a price for it non-painted and get local estimates to have it done. One of the only complaints I've heard about these covers (other than the leaky lock) is the paint bubbling up on some, kinda like the cover has acne. The explanation I've heard is that the fiberglass may not have cured 100% before the cover was painted. I've never had a problem with mine because the original owner did just as I described. He painted it locally. Maybe it was a fluke batch but just something to consider. Maybe you can save a few bucks, maybe not. Just a thought :top:

    I think most of those covers including mine were the ones made in the very original GB. My guess is they were trying to push them out to fill the orders and didn't wait long enough for everything to cure. Good news is Kris at Gaylords said they would warranty the paint . Problem is I would have to cover freight to Cali and back. They are aware of the issue so hopefully they won't make the mistake again.

    So what's the deal with this? Sounds like we have quite a few people on board. Has anybody called them?

    I have cash ready to buy. Any word if this can happen? These covers are sick and will make any x look that much better

    Seems like quite a bit of interest. Someone call Kris and tell him to talk to Klint!

    i just have my Speedstur installed yesterday in LA, I drove about 1 1/2 hour and very excited. The Lid is nice but i was disappointed after it was done. I try to show the pictures once i figure out how to attach it. Hopefully you can figure out what was the disappointment.
