    I never lock my doors. I would rather the scum take the $.46 I have in my center console than slash the $800 top.

    I have a couple of NB glass window tops that have some tears. Would do until you found a better one. Email if you need a loaner.

    thanks, i went and got it sealed up nice at tight over at my pops so im not worried about the rain for now just getting it replaced. if you do happen upon a decent used one for sure let me know as im gonna have to swap this before selling now.

    All I have for decent ones are tan right now. No nice black ones. I'll let you know if that changes.

    some research is leading me to believe i can cut out the back plastic and hopefully glue in a new one, anyone had any experience doing this?

    Just linked this to a friend who pulled his newer softtop out of his car this weekend. It's still on the frame, complete, black. He will PM you.

    This reminds me a some years ago when someone cut the window out of my unlocked Miata with all my CDs sitting in the floorboard ( I said this was a while ago) and around 80 dollars sitting in the arm rest. The top was less than a year old too.

    All they did was cut out the window. I guess they wanted it for their old top. People are dumb.
