    Tops arent that cheap. They wanted about 1500 to do my third gen when I had it too. If you can sew you might be able to make your own. Fabric isnt that expensive.

    I think (if you diy it) the fabric used is/was wheather proof canvas.. But imho vynil, or leather is the way to go. If you do deside to go with a DIY top, carefully destitch the old top and then you'll have the paterns by which to cut/sew your new fabric. I did a 64 Austin Healey Sprite's seats before. @ the time the paterns could only be gotten from England, Ihad to hand sew them with piping and all big PITA but it worked out fantastic.. Just take your sweet time and go for it..

    A company called Sunbrella makes a lot of canvas for boats. Should hold up fine. Dont forget a good thread too. Here is one premade. http://www.jcwhitney.com/convertible...uestid=7206849
