CF Hard top

I was thinking of buying a CF Hard top but is it something u can do at home or something that needs to be done by a professional? Also if anyone has had it installed how much did it cost?

You can buy it at home. A professional buyer would not add any value IMO. Good luck!

Just remember if you buy any of the 6000 advertised "Mugen-type" hard tops, you're going to have to buy a rear window, the weatherstripping, the hardtop catchers and the rear lock mounts. You're also going to have to do some adjustment to make it fit correctly (and you'll then have a fiberglas top that costs almost as much as a OEM one and is nowhere as nice).

Definitely do it at home. It is going to take a while (and I mean a while and lots of trial and error) to get all of the squeeks, creeks, and air noise out of it. And that is something no pro can do for you, just takes your own time and patience to make it perfect.

Good advice from kgf3076 too, make sure you know all of what you need before pulling the trigger.

And truthfully I don't believe the Mugen style tops have any insulation so expect a fair amount of heat and noise intrusion.

Definitely do it yourself. I did my own and it was pretty easy. An authentic Mugen top definitely helps though!
