Getting ready to order the top for my 62. I am going to go with a stayfast canvas and glass rear window. I have spoken with Gina at Ciadella and probably will go with her top at $1150.00. I want the largest rear glass window that is available.

If anyone has had a good experience with any other manufacturer pleas share. I know PVS409 Paul made some recommendations a while back and I can't remember who he had mentioned.

    In response to paintman

My convertible top installer in Omaha (Lions Automotive Upholstery ) recommended and they use EZ on Tops (the original manufacturer of 50's and 60s tops).
My tops (mine and a friends) came from a dealer/distributor for EZ On tops from California.

I also ordered a glass back window and my friend did.
My top was Light blue his bright white
