do you need one thou?
I do, the roof has many stitches that already let in water.
Plus the rear plastic window already leaks too
grab it then bud! you have a stunning car already so it woulds be a shame if that was all that was letting it down
I know - with delivery and customs fees - its still a bargain.
But, not exactly sure what it looks like (the ebay pic just shows a car with the hood DOWN!!!).
Can u tell if its the roof for the power hood?
I assume the US hood is the same for the Japan ones?
Also, the seller has feedback which says I need to drill holes in the roof (but the ebay advert seems to imply its a ABC job?!!!)
i really cant tell bud! sorry, maybe somebody with a vert can confirm?
No worries - no rush yet - but am saving up for a new roof as a christmas pressie
It's a USDM version. It won't look like the euro version. Sounds like a good deal to me.
It would look like mine...
Its wot i need thn - considering my JDM power hood will b the same as your USDM version
I just replaced the top on my car (and didnt do a good job) However i didnt see a need to drill any holes....Just make sure you're taking your time and double checking everything. Mine will work for now but I do plan on replacing it again in the next year. I would recommend buying from a manufacturer since you know for sure it is good shape and you will also need the tack strips that you can get from a manufacturer.
Like I said I have done this recently and learned from my mistakes. If you have any questions feel free to message me.
EDIT: JC Whitney and convertibletopguys.com are good places to look.
I will b in touch soon!
Any before/after shots of your roof?
no before pics...when i got it there was pretty much no top. the after pics will give you an idea of how it shouldnt look lol. i will post some later and point out the areas i had trouble with. trust me though its not going to be a pretty sight lol
Cheers Pal - every little bit of info helps! :thumbsup:
Just checked out the links u suggested....looking at $600 for Topguys PLUS shipping
Whitney is $200-$500+ PLUS shipping to the U.K!
Hence why the one I posted was so tempting at just $189!
I am sure u get what u paid for - so I had to be sure the $189 was good.
So did you end up getting that one off of E-bay? If so how does it look? That is a much better price, and if it looks good i may have to consider purchasing one myself
Sorry no, I wasn't 100% sure it will fit mine - plus there are feedbacks about having to drill new holes to fit them...
