Hi everyone, I have a new convertible top, 1/4 tonneau cover and side curtains for my car. I’m looking to get a upholstery shop to install it. Our local guy does great work but doesn’t have a lot of experience with speedsters. My question is, how long would it take to install the top, tonneau and side curtains? I also have a new top header bow too. 

Also if anyone could tell me where the 2 button go on the car for the tonneau cover straps?

Thanks

I did mine (Top and side windows) in 2 - 3 days of part-time work.  I had someone else (an upholstery guy) modify my tonneau for my headrests and add all of the snaps to match the top snaps and that took him 2 days so I guess 4-5 days for the whole shebang, maybe less?

These times are what it takes me with a lot of experience doing speedster tops. Install body snaps 1 hr.   Fit metal bows & tension handles, install snaps, prep header bow add two latches, glue top to header bow. 5 hrs. Install top flap snaps to windshield frame 3/4 hrs. Install snaps to quarter tonneau cover & two strap snaps to lower tub wall 1-1/4 hrs. Install side curtain post sockets 1-1/4 hrs.  Side Curtain safety straps snaps to door top rails.  3/4 hrs.   ....  About 10 hours
