Cab Top Replacement Orange County, LA


Recommended Posts

Hi all again,

After dealing with my top issues and having read in the forums, I have decided on replacing the top on my 996 99 with a new one with glass. Now, I can't find a place in Orange County/Los Angeles area that can give me a straight answer on how much they will charge for putting it on. I think I found a place but they send it to an upholster to be installed, and then they do the calibration. I am not convinced that an upholster should even try to put a whole new top on a cab since as I see it is not an upholstery task since the top is new and does not need repair. If anybody could give me some insight on this question, and/or make a recommendation on where to go around OC/LA please do so. I just don't want to mess up.

Thanks guys

I got a GAHH glass top through ebay. I called the person who sold it for me on ebay and he gave me a phone # to the one they use in my area. Their quote was $700. GAHH also has a list on their website about the ones they use, but they are a bit more. But I also went to meet a local mechanic who deals with Porsches and he recommended me to a place that does most Porsche tops here in Houston. They installed it for $550 the same day.

I'm very happy with the result since I got the top at a good price to start with.

Hello:

I just got my 99 996 top replaced with a glass window from GAHH. It came out BEAUTIFUL. I bought the top from them and they dropped shipped to an upholsterer they recommended. THe old top gets junked and thenew top is put on. I was charged a flat fee. I live in Diamond Bar and had the work done in Ontario. I work in NB and didn't find anyone out there wiling to work with me.

I live in Yorba Linda, so close to you. Can you pm me or post the info for the place you took it to? If it is not too much to ask, I would love to see your car, so my wife can see how nice it really looks with the glass! :)

Thanks guys
