Default Good Local Shop-Houston

I bought my roadster about 6 months ago and the top now has 2 rips along the back corners. Does anyone know a decently priced shop that could install the soft top for me? I don't want to go to a random shop and possibly get screwed.

I couldn't tell you a good shop; however, I'm looking pretty seriously into doing this on my own. Looks like it's actually pretty easy and should only take an hour or two. Here's a link to the DIY video I found:

And here's one for a good place to get a soft top of your desired material and tools/instructions if you don't already have a rivet gun and rivets:

Hope this helps!

Hey Casey welcome to the forum. i'm in total agreement with Travlee here, if you can get a forum member to help you out then all well and god but these are not too difficult to fit and you can imagine the satisfaction you're going to get when you've done a good job fitting it. its going to give you many, many confidence points to try other repairs or servicing and before long you'll be saving yourself a small fortune and helping other forum members out.

I was looking for a shop to replace my top. I have the usual vertical rips near the window. Mine has three 1.5-2 in rips now Thinking about just doing this myself next week when I have some time off.
