Time for them to invest in a web designer. At a minimum, they need to have their pics larger.

i talked to the guy, they build and ship 35 tops a week
and a ton of the cab over things
no too shabby

interesting to note that:
he is willing to make molds
and his tops weigh in at 200 lbs with composit material and balsa
can walk on them
and are from what he said 1/2 the price......
the killer is the $2000 shipping
SO, worth it for a pick up deal

Don't hold your breath waiting for Sampson to send photos----I'm one month waiting and nothing so far. Sorry but no one in a sales capacity is that "busy"!!

I'll agree their sparse few photos online look great so far they don't seem too interested in following through on promises.

Summit Fiberglass on the other hand specifically Chad Nelson has been outstanding during my entire correspondence. Both Sampson and Summit are close enough for me to pick something up but without better follow up there's not much choice IMHO between the two.

I absolutely love the Fiberine products but they're simply too far from me to be a practical choice.

Re: Hard tops New Vendor I just found

I have met the owner of Summit Fiberglass (or some top dog) and was really impressed with him and the company.
He was into the idea of listening to end users and being creative.
Of course being in Phx shipping would be brutal but if pickup is an option then they are a top notch company.

Keep us posted
Jeff at sampson seemed to be willing to make molds if he could sell product
I dont think molds could cost that much....
---- dont know how many he would have to sell to be motivated
