I'd get one if I can pay someone to do the install. Does anyone in the Bay area do this type of install (other than the OEMs)?

Wow, my dealer replaced my top under warranty because of a minor fit problem along the window. I am glad I did not know how much disassembly this job takes, or I probably would not have let the dealer do it. In the end they did an A+ job.

Joe did an awesome job helping me install my top and he helped me wash my car afterwards to boot! What a guy!

As for the top, I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone. If you want the defroster, its only $100 more, but for those of you who live in the south, its not really necessary. The top looks and feels like OEM and going from the plastic rear window to the glass one has made a world of difference!

this is the best writeup on the site for a robbins top. I used a lot of the info here to complete my top yesterday... took me about 11 hours...

Glad to hear it helped out.

I think a lot of people are intimidated by all the steps and get scared away from doing the top install themselves. It's about as easy as a clutch job though, only you don't have to fish around for a starter bolt

My topped shipped out today and I will be using this Walkthrough for sure when mine comes in. By the way the same thing happened to me in the cold! Only my friend did it!
