The glass window will be a lot easier to keep clean and esp see out of at night esp. I had a vert with a vinyl rear window and the back window was useless most of the time

Yup. Glass window is the way to go. The only plus to the plastic is if something gets caught in the top when your closing it, it won't break.

When I bought mine a few years ago I bought the whole kit. Which was 250-300$. But just the top itself is around 150$. Are u doing the install yourself? It is very difficult. You almost have to have the how to DVD. I can't see it being done without. The instruction you get are like 2 little paragraphs. The DVD is like 2 1/2 hours. Also you don't wanna cheap out on the top. It will multiply the difficulty of the job.

Wow. 100$? Has he done them before? Because book time on the job is 8-10 your job. I was quoted a like 850$ on just labor for mine so I had no choice but to do it myself. For 100$ I would be all over that.

That's good. 400$ is still worth it. I would have payed that. But 850$ was just to much. I got her done though.

That's best for sure. I always tell anyone that thinks about trying it "buy the how to DVD". For one, its almost impossible to do it without it. And two, you will know what your getting yourself into before you actually ruin the top. Opps I mean install the top.Lol.
