We are still making the factory hard top clones but have been unable to source the latches. The prices listed in this post are accurate.

I'm not sure of the color name of the targa we have it pictured on. It's a brick red/orange color in person.

If your car is prepped for a factory hardtop and you have those latches, you're all set.
If you need a j-hook top, hold on a short bit.
We ARE working on that version and are nearly ready to mold the new inner frame.

Best bet is to email me at the address below so we cane work out exactly what you need.

Getting closer,

the J-Hook bottom frame model is now fully formed and ready for surfacing...
With any luck, we'll be building the mold next week.

Stay tuned!
Thanks,

At some point we'll do the roller latch bottom as well.

How is this project coming along? My '81 targa would enjoy a hardtop.

Is it much quieter than the factory soft top?

How much will a carbon J hook style be? I have the hooks and stuff if that matters.

In addition, based on a few improvements in the layup process and the sheer volume of carbon we are buying these days, pricing has been adjusted to $1800 in carbon and $1400 in fiberglass. This is is sans latches and seals but does include guide pins front and rear.
