Great write up from Cyclon36, thanks for sharing. As someone who used this write up the first time I replaced an S2k top it has most everything needed to get the job done. Since then, I've replaced well over 100 S2K tops.

I would suggest however that you correct your OEM pricing, MSRP $1340 or $900 from Majestic, or at least make a note that the price is for the material only. The total install from a dealer and most trim shops on average will be in the $2500 range.

if you want a quality top for less money, Robbins is a tried and true alternative. I would recommend cloth vs the oem vinyl. The cloth has a better look and feel to it and is often viewed as an upgrade over the oem vinyl.

I believe this is the most popular place to buy a new top and I think you get free shipping as an S2KI member, but don't quote me on that!

Topsonline is a large top supplier here. Ask for Vic ( not sure if Seta is still there) and tell him you are from S2ki. A member from Texas set the path years ago. For more top info you can visit the Northern Texas Community, sticky by Clovis on top replacement provides tons of useful info on the subject.

P.S. The link above will save a backyard mechanic a LOT of install money as noted; I've done 7 tops now and this thread is key to success. other great threads can be found in Under the Hood Blue stickies at top of UTH Forum.

Default robbins top after clovis mod on MY2001

Anyone know which Robbins top to buy for a MY2001 that previously had the Clovis mod done? The previous owner converted it to a heated glass rear window with an OEM 2002+ soft top and the Clovis mod with elastic straps to ensure the frame folds correctly. Not sure if a 2002+ Robbins top will work with this setup.
