With the weather getting colder, I bought a new top and frame from Mexico.  The frame needed a little refinement (changing geometries (hole distance) and hardware) to fit behind my custom seats.  So far progress is going well!

Yes, it was Rafael’s shop.  He was very responsive and informative  via messenger, but it took about 2 months to get the top to California.  For a while there, I thought I got scammed since he only accepted a bank transfer.  I kept positive , and everything arrived as promised.  Rafael even included the side windows as a gift for the long delay.  The quality is decent, but I did have to make a few tweaks to the frame because of my custom seats.  Everything was under a grand, including shipping, so I think it’s an excellent score.  I’ll keep you posted as I finish the top installation.

@david.stroud.im.roadster He included the matching side windows as part of the deal

@alan.merklin Here is the pic of my top folded.  With some minor trimming, I think everything will fit snuggly under the cover.  I still need to form the bar around the back similar to the pic of the blue car.  It is a very clever attach point.  The rear of the top is not secured with the snaps, but rather by the tube/rod.  It looks a lot more smoother with less wrinkles.
