Convertible top installation...DIY?

Am I crazy in thinking about installing a new convertible top myself. Are there any detailed instructions out there.

its not that bad really.

theres a video from the factory that they sent out to dealerships/techs about how to do it. my dad and i got a hold of it when we did this and we then sent to a guy that was gonna make copies and sell them, actually i think you can buy copies on ebay. its really just a matter of lining it up right and gluing everything. i havent had any leaks from my ebay top in 5 years.

+1. You can buy the factory CD on eBay and it was instructions on how to replace the top.

Also with every aftermarket top there should come instructions how to do the job. It's not hard.

This is the DIY I used when I did mine:
Share a project
There weren't any surprises.
