95 convertible

I have a 95 gt drop top and heard that Robbins tops are really good. But in some reviews I read different. Any opinion about this brand of top?

I bought my top from late model restoration. It's made by electron top and it so far seems worth it. It's heavy duty and tougher than he oem top so when you have the top down for a while It wrinkles a bit. Not a big deal because the wrinkles o away after a short while. Are you planing to do your top yourself? I did mine and have to say in all my time working on motors, suspension, brakes, trans. The top is a whole different ball game. It takes a skill and experience I was on a budget so I dident have a choice. Any way I got the DVD from late model resto and it helped a lot. Also it dident come out perfect. Check out my profile pictures there's some pics of the top being replaced.

About a day and a half, buy the how to DVD from late model restoration for your year and get an idea of what your getting yourself into before you drop 400$ on a new top kit

Not to Shire but I know shops charge 400$ to install a new back window and that includes the price of the new window assembly

Yea here in colo it's about 5-700 dollars for the complete top w/ pads and install. The install runs about $400 so I was thinking about trying it myself.
