WabFab Bikini tops

I would hold off on buying a bikini top from WabFab... for now. I just got a bikini top from them... not what I thought it was going to be... but I'm in discussions with them... hopefully we can work this out.

Don't come out and post an ambigious post.

What exactly is the problem with the kit? You can't get it to fit right?

What EXACTLY is the issue?

I have a kit on my 4Runner and it worked PERFECT. They are all built on the same jig so...?

Pretty sure the whole site has wabbit's back, I think he thought it was more of a full top than a bikini top, I love mine! Seeing that the user has one previous post tells me they just made an acct to bash on a vendor...

WabFab Disappointment

You guys are hilarious... I know exactly what I ordered--I attached a pic of my 4runner when I put on my new bumper... I put a K-Line top on shortly after this pic...
The difference is night and day, but I'm giving the folks at WabFab the opportunity to make this right and maybe this set up will work well...

So, what is the problem? You are telling people not to buy WabFab's bikini top, but still haven't said why. Lot's of people on here have them and are happy, so please, elaborate.

everybody and their dog knows what a 1st gen 4runner with a hard top looks like...no pic of your 4runner with a kayline top on it next to the wabfab bikini top..
facts....not conjecture

Over all the craftsmanship of the Wabfab bikini top is outstanding.

you're not going to get far bashing a vendor on here that everybody loves, especially if you dont tell us what you are disappointed with.

looks like Kayline has gone belly up and than the company, STC that bought their product line is kapute too.
The only reference I can find for a Kayline top for a 4runner is for a full top...no Kayline 4Runner Bikini tops...

The funny thing is, every time this stupid thread gets bumped, it will remind at least one more person that they should order a bikini top from Wabbit.

WabFab Disappointment



Guys, order a bunch of bikini tops from WabFab if you like... seriously...
I'm not bashing on Wabfab... yet.

Just trying to pass on some useful info...
Maybe improve the products at the same time.

So far all we have is hearsay from you.
You have provided zero pictures or facts to back your claims.
This can be considered slander if you do not provide data backing up your claims.

I have had no issues with my WabFab top either. I have it installed 5-6 months out of the year. Some day I'll find a smokin' deal on a full soft top, but until then the bikini top is just fine.

Keep up the good work Wabbit.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WABFAB TOP ?

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WABFAB TOP ?

WHY IS THERE NO PHOTOS OF A KAYLINE BIKINI TOP AND ONLY FULL TOPS?


hmmm. I think you wanted a full top and not a bikini top. You CANNOT say different till you produce a PIC of your KAYLINE BIKINI TOP.

Click the image to open in full size.


for someone trashing ANYONE without PROOF.

You cannot trash ANYONE because of your PREFERENCE and LIKES/DISLIKES. Just because you don't like the design, does not mean you can or should come here bashing someone else's product. If the dang thing fit, your opinion on its design means jack crap. If it didn't fit, show proof. PIC is only proof. Not one single person on here has and one single issue with theirs.

THIS THREAD SHOULD BE DELETED. And user banned. He was asked several times, what his issue was, has replied several time so he has had the opportunity. Not like he can use the "well I am not online all the time" excuse.

Sorry for my but getting tired of useless pieces of (insert profanity here) jerks coming on here bashing crap and either have no clue what they are doing, or just don't like something. Especially someone who just freakin registered.

X2!! xxxtreme pretty much hit the nail on the head. Why can the OP not explain why he/she/it is dissapointed with the top? Or provide pictures or any other sort of evidence? It makes me think that the OP just doesn't like the way it looks so they decided to complain about it to try to get others on his/her side...good luck with that...

I say that if the OP doesn't explain WHY they are disappointed, or provide some sort of evidence that there is a problem then this thread should be deleted and the newbie OP should be

Hey I belong in like 3 or 4 BMW Forums. Non of them are like this. Most of the BMW guys actually know what they are doing. Well the ones who actually work on their own cars anyway, the others are just enthusiasts who can afford to go to the dealerships for their $50 oil changes.

Mabe the O.P. Has no clue paid someone else's incompetent to put it on and they said it didn't fit because they have no clue either?
