Cab Top Repair - Florida


Recommended Posts

I need to get the rear plastic window re-attached or stitched on my Cab. I live in Central Florida and don't know of any good repair facilities that do this kind of work. Looking for any suggested places to look for the work to be done properly. Thanks.

Hey hows it going - I had the same issue with my 911. Its called delaminating - and its a pretty common thing. Unfortunately, any of the adhesive repairs won't last long. I had this guy fix my top - i think it was around 400-500 dollars and it looked great. He stitched in a new plastic window. You will see the thread around the outside of the window on top, but it doesn't look bad at all. I'd show you a pic of mine, but I actually had a new porsche top put on (after someone had cut through my top and stole my ipod). In my humble opinion - its the most reasonable way to go unless you want to spring for a new porsche top (mine was ~6k installed at the dealer) After market tops are cheaper, but from what I've heard the aftermarket tops don't fit too well. Best of luck!

Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it. I was really bummed, cannot believe they wouldn't use stitching in the first place...seems like a no brainer to me. I was looking at aftermarket tops, not going to pay $6k for a new top. I'll make it a hard top for that price. Anyway, really appreciate your help, I'll call them tomorrow. How long did it take for the repair and how far in advancve did you need to set up the appointment before they got you in?

Aftermarket tops from GAHH fit very good. Plus the window is stitched in. Some new tops from Porsche come stitched in I am told but I never saw them.
