That's not a fun job. I did my 95 GT a few years ago and I see why they charge so much to do it at a shop.

Just take your time and be careful with the tack strips and if possible do it out in the sun so the new top can soften up. I did mine in the garage but left the top out in the sun till I got my old one off. I also replaced all my old tack strips because the front ones were cracked.

I def recommend buying the how to dvd.i don't see it being possible by a first timer without it.the dvd is very low budget quality, but very very informative.the instructions that came with it were about a paragraph.
