I thought I saw that some aftermarket co. is now making them. This co. makes tops for other roadsters too. But the price was more than what used hts were selling for.

It takes patience, but you can still find some in the 800 range.
However, anyone who wants to pay 2000 for one, I have a red one I will let go for that price... LOL.

I got mine for 900 a few weeks ago. You have to be patient and get them from the people who dont know what they have

of course, now im tempted to pony up the cash for that one. nah ill wait for a better deal. Summers coming up and ill just leave the top down anyway, then find a good deal over summer when people sell em.

god I hope the demand reaches a point where there is profit in making hardtops aftermarket that arent 1500$... a nice 400-500$ hardtop with a rectangle lexan window... they would sell so godamn many of them it would be a joke.

$400-$500 isn't enough to make a good profit, but if the stock units continue to increase I wouldn't be suprised to find unpainted aftermarket units for right around $1K in the near future. Anything less than $800 and the company isn't making a solid profit (unless they are built in china).
