Red face New soft top install help needed

I would like to find someone who will help me install a new soft top on my 2003 Honda s2000. I am not into paying 2000.00 when I think I can purchase the roof for 600.00 and install myself. I live in the Vancouver, BC Canada Area... any ideas????

I have never done one or seen one replaced on an S, but I have watched it done on other cars, American and foreign. Could you do it, probably, will it be perfect, that is the question. This is one of those jobs, like rebuilding a diff, where experience counts. Knowing the little tricks and ins and out will make the difference. My suggestion: search Youtube for any videos especially for maybe Miata top replacements if there are none on the S. See if the same things and procedures are applicable to the S. Buy a new top, be so familiar with it you can tell where everything goes and attaches and then if you are comfortable with the job, give it try. And hey, keep us posted.

i agree with cdk in that it is an involved process; you will have to take the interior apart.

i have seen a pictorial of how it is done. it was on s2katlanta.com which is now a part of s2kca.com--go to the atlanta section and ask around. see if you can find tonybell or hoa and they will be able to direct you to someone that may be able to better advise you.

i'd be glad to help but BC is a long ways ( about 4700 miles) from here; and cold, too!
