I just had this done by a professional, and assisted him in my garage. All I can say is, it's not a DIY if you want it to come out perfect. There are so many exacting little steps that only someone who has done it before would know. This pro does nothing but tops all day long and it still has a slight wrinkle in the window corner. I did tons of research and didn't see one post from someone who had completed a DIY successfully. FYI, we used a GAHH top and my old liner, total cost $2400. If I could do it over I would have used the heavier A5 top vs the Sonnenland which the car top guy selected.
My '95 odometer failed at almost exactly the same mileage. There's a small gear inside the speedo that disintegrates from the OEM lube used, and can be replaced DIY or by a good speedo shop. I did mine for about $50 which I'm sure is slightly under what the dealership charged. Forgot to make my point, which is you could also open it up and reset the numbers if you know what your doing, or have a speedo shop do it if they are allowed to.
