I bought a complete used but decent top and frame from foxbody (member here) and managed to drop it in, and it was my first time doing it. Its pretty straight forward and do-able with 2 people, maybe 1 if you have a way to lower it down into place with tiedowns strapped to beams (if inside garage). If you are going new, it gets pricey, so pricey that i opted to do it myself lol

I had 2 tops done. First one was on an ASC so that's different. My normal guy was busy so I had to go to another place many are 1-2 month wait. Expect to pay $800 to $1000 for the install. As for tops, my guy suggested Topsonline .com. Robbins or EZon are the two choices but are one company. I went with Robbins. I was not 100% satisfied with the jiob when completed. There wee some puckered areas between the quarter panel and rear window. I was hoping they would disappear in a few weeks. Also the edge at the quarter window does not lay flat. I can be critical on these as I also have a couple of original cars with no defects. If you want the names of the shops, pm me. Be sure to buy the kit with the glass window and get the correct length cables.
