Had my hard top made by Canvas Creations but I heard that the owner died.
Compared to your quote I got ripped off. I think I paid about $3500. He
worked with me extensively to get the height and window angles maximized
for functionality and ergonomics. I'm a little mixed on the asthetics
though. It's hard to maintain an attractive look with enough height and
length while also keeping the usability of the side tracks. I don't use
them but didn't want to obstruct them. In retrospect it may have been a
better choice to just give them up.
