First post, please bear with me.

I have a '83 DeVille that needs a new vinyl top. I've been searching the web but can't find anyone selling vinyl tops, just rag tops. Any tips on where I can find one? Also, I took it to a shop and was told to expect $575 for an installed top. Is that the price to expect?

Cool. That sounds a lot better then $575. Please let me know how it comes out and how much of the trim and mouldings they remove for the install.

The only place you can (or at least should) get a vinyl top is at a vinyl top shop. $575 is too much, I've seen good ones done for half that.

Yeah, it isn't exactly something you can just buy off the net, ready to put on--you're going to have to find a shop that does them. Look up upholstery shops in the book and start asking them.

Im having mine done at a upholstry shop, who also does these tops and conv. tops.

He said he weill remove ALL the trim, and replace any clips as necassary. Then hopefully reinstall the Emblems

575 is too much for a top replacement? How does 800 dollars sound then because thats the going price in New Jersey and 1k in NYC.
