Default Cracked hardtop

I have a cracked/busted up hardtop for sale. Long story short, last december I went offroading and hit some things on the way. Like a fence.

The top came off a 94 M-edition, and is obviously, montego blue. It now has some extensive damage, but overall shape is fine and I believe it will stay in place on the car.

$100 firm takes it all, local pickup in Gaithersburg, MD.
I also have it on Craigslist for $200. I really don't want to ship it but will entertain the idea of meeting halfway. I could probably drive as far as 200 miles for a fee....

Now, pictures! all photos are 3000px wide if you click on them. I tried to document *all* the damage. So if it's not in the pictures, then it's in perfect shape.

This is the good side.


The part that meets the windshield frame is chipped all over.


This is the damaged side.


It's a hole, you can see inside the hardtop...


The window frame thing is bent, obviously.


This is a chip on the rear of the top.


It's pretty big but...


The rubber/plastic thing hides most of it.


There is a crack on the inside as well


Driver s ide latch is fine


Passenger side latch, however, has damage. It's still in place but the area would probably need to be reinforced.


The latch is loose.


Side view of the window frame damage.


On the *INSIDE* there is damage around the side striker latch.


More of the inside damage


Passenger side rubber parts is shredded to pieces.


Had headliner and has defrost.


I still have the headliner so you could technically glue it back.

I'll keep that in mind. And 500 miles is not that far, I may entertain the idea of meeting halfway (like, Wheeling, OH).

I'd prefer to have it shipped if possible because I don't know how I could get it home by car. Could it be attached to a miata with the convertible top down?

If gearhead_318 falls through I'd be interested in it shipped if you are willing, I'm more then happy with cheapass grayhound shipping.

The plethora of people window shoppers who came and looked it deemed the top "not fixable". So latches/strikers are going to SLVMX5 and glass (attached to the top...) is going to Sean.

Yo, if I show up with like $20, can I throw a brick through through the glass?

If not, consider this a free bump.
