Recommendations for Convertible Top Installer?

Anyone with experience getting a convertible top replaced?

What's a decent shop that does convertible top installations for a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance!

I have always dealt with Lou at Pacific Auto Trim who has done several roofs for us when we were in the car business including my personal 911 at the time. I believe he is also the de-facto choice for Weissach and several of the top body shops. They aren't cheap but I believe you will get a top quality job there.

Good luck,
Mark

Last 2 jobs ive had done at pacific auto trim have been horrible, one of them was a convertible top. I use to recommend them all the time, never again.

Lou sold the company a while back. He is retired now I believe. I have dealt with Vancouver Convertible Tops, and they have done great work for me.

I had my top replaced there about five years ago... never leaked before, always leaks now.

Would not recommend.

Ahh that's too bad to hear. It's been quite awhile since they did my 911, probably close to 10 years, but they did a phenomenal job at the time.
