I was just told I need a whole new top but I want to wait until I've had all the body work and new paint job, next spring at the earliest. My tops not that bad but you can't see thru the window at all. The upholsterer said he doesn't even have to take the whole top off the car to put a window in (but he doesn't want to mess with mine because he says it's too bad?). Anyway to get me thru till next year I was thinking about doing it myself. They're only $40. Otherwise I continue to drive it only when I'm sure it ain't gonna rain!
