Yes, but you will need the '99 frame also. Then it is a direct bolt on. If you do not have the '99 frame, the top will not fit on the '91 frame.

And the nice thing about the m2 tops is you don't need to unzip the back window when yo put them down ;p

Yup! But the reason you need the NB frame.

you can modify the na frame to work, have to drill out the rivets on teh rear hoop and add a strap, i dont remember what all else is involved, there is a website outlining all of it somewhere, i think its easier to obtain both if possible.

the frames pop up on .net for like $50 pretty often, if the top is cheap it's worth it.

i have a 99 top on my car. Friend pop rivited and made the modifications needed for it to fit. All you really need is some strap webbing to make up for the lack of a "auto" folding mechanism. I helped him out since i do not have a tools needed. It works great. and looks great.

Thanx a lot guys...
I decided to not to go the way with 99 top.Because my firend told that the top that he wanted to give me is cutted with knife and he patched it.
So it is not a good ide to replace with mine with modifications.
I will cahnge the top with robbins or something like that in this summer with glass window.Do I have to prefer another brand for the soft top ?
Also has any one got an idea about glass window soft top with the RpmQ ( which is on the m.net's garage section )subwoofer box on the back self couse I 'm planin to build one under my frenzy style bar.

Default Duetto

Duetto has a sweet deal on tops, good warranty. top fell apart due to my careless nature, and they sent a new one, and paid $500.00 for the installation. they sell through Acme Auto Headlining. my top has instructions on how to modify the frame, and now has the straps and webbing and folds withough unzipping. I give them an A+ on service and Quality, although my brand new glass window canvas top just got slashed,.... although it is not there fault, I will be buying from them again though. get ahold of Gerry Duetto a Duetto Motors, and tell him Cody Fowler sent you he will give you the best deal. my .02
