The Definitive Top Canvas DIY


Recommended Posts

Nice!

Fred sent me the materials last week, and he's been trying to get the DIY posted to PPBB's Tech Articles. Mike Focke's page is a great place for it. I do have the document in PDF format, and I also have the Porsche Workshop manual section about the top if anyone needs it.

Thanks to Chris for putting it in PDF, and getting it to a great place to host the procedure! I hope it helps many Boxster owners!

Oh, I might have to do a little addendum to the procedure, since Fred's car doesn't have a headliner... and newer Boxsters do. AFAIK, you do not get a new headliner with a new top, so it needs to be removed and reinstalled with the new top.

I have a new top on order for my 2002 Boxster S. Hopefully I'll be able to install, I have the PDF files referred to in this string which should help along the way. The only thing I don't have is how to remove and replace the headliner. Any help you could give or refer me to would be appreciated. I've had my car 3 weeks and cracked the rear window the second day I had it lowering it when the weather was 33 degrees to check out the engine!

i'll bet you won't be doing that again! ;)

Hopefully he'll get a glass window top!

Tom, I have not replaced my top, so I have not been able to see how the headliner is installed/removed. I likely won't be replacing my top until later this summer. Depends on how finances work out. BTW, I did the same thing you did, and cracked my rear window. Had to put some clear tape on the inside, and fill the cracks with household Goop. It seals, but it looks like turd.
