    I have a 95 Convertible. I need a new top for it. I had my top slashed my some dang sooners like 3 years ago. I bought one and it was not too shabby. I went for one of the cheapest and it sure showed!! Have any of you replaced yours? If so what company did you buy from? I cannot even remember whom I bought it from, which would probably help!! See ya and thanks!!!

    50 resto sells some good shit. I havent gotten to put mine on yet but it looks to be really good quality. Your better off just getting it at the shop your going to have it installed at. You wont save much or any at all by buying the top yourself.

    Thanks!! The time I had my previous one installed I did not care for! I had my back glass busted, my error, about 2 years ago. I really liked the place in which installed it. They told me if it ever happened again they could make the glass. I did not realize they could do the actual top.

    I am thinking now that they might know of one that is better!! Thanks!!

    the only atvantage of buying the top yourself is that you know what you are getting. Just make sure the shop has the brand electatop (I think that is how you spell it). 50resto.com sells them. but it is up to you.

    I see one @ 50resto.com as being a Electron Top Mfg. Is that the one you are talking about? Thanks!!
