Alex, let me know how the install went? I heard it is a huge pain, I hate I missed this group buy.
Actually I only managed to do it with the help of crfine88
He is actually preparing a very detailed DIY.
It?s actually not as bad as I expected.

The old roof is off. Dropping the new roof off for clear coat next week.
Slowly putting together a DIY for removal, preparation and installation.

Here a few test fit photos (roof set in place to check gaps and fit)

I wondered about clear coat. Does it come with clear on it and are you adding more? Or, is there none on it when it arrives?

Mine arrived in one piece, and they obviously took lessons from Chris in packaging.

Great stuff.



Now to get clear coated and then to get this baby on.

I plan on getting mine cleared and then having Xpel Paint Protection Film applied to it to really protect the finish

my roof has arrived (4 days earlier than shipping indicated). packaging is superb. the roof itself is gorgeous, and the weave is correct for what I specified in the order. I'll update in my pics thread when install is complete (might be next spring, possibly earlier).

Thank You! to all those responsible for putting this all together. it was a great service to this community

Even a heavy OEM hardtop is triple the price of this group buy. I didn't scroll through the whole thread, but was there any update on a roadster hardtop? I'd imagine interest would be many times more than it is for the coupe version especially if you advertised on other groups as well.

I emailed them today and heard back that they are finishing up the one they are currently working on and should ship it out on Monday. She told me that mine should be done early December.
