I have searched here, and the other forums.... most threads are quite old.


...our cars are also a little older as well. My roof is more stained and tattered than I’m happy with. The threads that are out there comparing aftermarket to dealer offerings are out of date.


Anyone within the last 24mos replaced their top with any feedback?
Particularly interested in Canadian offerings, but USA also fine.

I have not.

I think my top might be too far gone for rejuvenation?...

Yeah it's very unlikely it does much for the contact points, especially the circles, however having some around is a plus and it will beautify the rest.

I also have wear in the "C- pillar" area as shown in the first photo. I am assuming this is just normal wear, or do I need to dig into it deeper? Is there any preventative measures that should be taken to extend the life? I originally figured I would not do anything until you can see daylight through it (which could be many, many years down the road).

That looks fairly normal to me. All tops have the round spots and the c-pillar wear

Thanks DMN987S and BoristheSpyder.... I thought it was normal. And I agree, the photos above don't look bad.

I agree, looks completely normal and inline with how my top works. I 2nd the raggtop suggestion, makes the circles less noticeable and even the c pillar wear area as it makes the rest of the top a darker black appearance once applied.

Hold my beer.....

Ordered some ragg top.
Will follow up once I've applied it.
