2001 Boxster rear window cracked

The plastic rear window on my 2001 Boxster has developed a crack that is growing. Are there any options other than a new top? Will the top with a glass rear window fit my car? Is the installation a project that the nominal owner wrench can do?
The car lives in the garage and is driven only on sunny days, so the problem isn't urgent, but it needs to be fixed.
Comments? Suggestions?

Yes, you can order a roof with a glass rear window from our host. I would recommend it since it will end the issues the the plastic rear window forever. I replaced the roof on my '02 Boxster myself, but budget a full weekend or 2 for doing it. It's a little finicky, but the instructions in Wayne's book, and the expanded set of pictures on the Pelican site are definitely useful. The only thing that is not covered real clearly in the instructions is described here.

My 2000 is doing the same thing. I used opticly clear "Gorilla" tape, it holds great!
