Saratoga tops to be made again

I contacted the OEM supplier of the Saratoga tops some time ago. I just heard back today that they still have the tooling to manufacture New Stock Saratoga tops with tint and correct Logos again. This is for real and no BS.

I told them we need pricing around the $300 range. They will Mfg a minumum of 100 units for now. Who is in for these new stock tops.

Yes same as rennlist. I was contacted by PIlkington today and was told they will do this. They will make 100 units to start. The more we can get ordered, the cheaper the costs. I told them $300 price range would sell rather well. No more $1000 used top market.

If they're making 100, is that 100 power tops? Will they make the manual tops too?

I'm in for sure.

Hurray - Count me in also. I have always wanted one, but the prices of the existing ones were to much - this is great!

I'm in - finding it hard to believe that they are going to produce a handful of new Saratoga tops for the price of a windshield - but as soon as I see a web site with a part number and price I'm in.

And I purchased a NIB (never opened - never installed) grey Saratoga last year - I was elated to pay a grand. For 300 a copy I'll buy spares - several*.

*Providing they are identical in quality to the originals
