I hope this forum is still on!
I am looking for a cartop for a MGTD car or someone to make one. I am in Raleigh. NC.March 23, 2006 at 7:41 am #236755
Hi medicinewheel8, I had a top made in Lexington, KY. The young guy made it using the old top as a pattern. I am very satisfied in what he did. Let me know if you are interested.March 23, 2006 at 7:50 am #236756
Yes, I would be interested!
1) Price estimate
2) Does the car have to be there?

Hi, good to hear from you. I talked to Dean Morgan, Classic Auto and Trim in Lexington, KY yesterday and told him that I offered his services but wanted to be sure that he was ready to do some more of that work. He said yes.
Here is his phone number: 859-278-3908
He prefers to use his cell: 859-983-9435
Hope this helps, let me know. Take care and have funMarch 25, 2006 at 9:14 am #236758
Hi once more. I assume that your car is a replica like mine. My car is in Florida and he did the top without the car, just with the old top that he took apart for a pattern. Mine is a Fiberfab and I still have the old top too. He made the top after we selected the material and without the snaps. I installed the top with his instructions and bought some snap installation inserts tools that fit on the end of a pair of Vice Grips and that he gave me the address for. I sent away for them and then installed the snaps to match the existing locations. Take care and have funApril 3, 2006 at 10:25 am #236759
Hi! I have not called him yet…been so busy!
APPROX what did he charge you? I know I do not want a vinyl top again.
Is yours vinyl or cloth? If cloth..what kind?
Thanks! BarbaraApril 4, 2006 at 5:28 am #236760
Hi, The material of my top is a type of material that is used on boat covers, it might be a type of vynil. He has several other materials that he can make tops from, however, the prices change then a lot. Mine was made for a bit over 500 but he would have to give you the price. The other estimates went as high as 1300. The others all wanted to have the car in their shop before they would even consider it. I am sure that you could get samples of the material that you want there in Raleigh and send to him to get an idea. Take care and have fun.
