    Need a new convertible top for my '94

    My '94 is ready for a new convertible top, could anyone recommend a good shop in the Nashua area? I am also
    interested in replacing the NON rear defrost glass window with one with a rear defrost and adding the switch to the
    dashboard.. Has anyone ever done that too?

    Thanks

    Just put a new top on my '94 this year. The shop that did it said mine was the last one they are doing, the owner is going to scale back his operation. You can check it out in case he has had a change of heart, it's American Auto Seat Cover on D Street in Nashua.
    If that doesn't work you would probably have good luck at Superior Interiors in Hookset.

    +1 American in Nashua also did my top ~ 10 yrs ago. Still good. in part it's how you treat it after it's installed. For my 67 I insisted on a Robbins top.

    I am also desperate to know if he will do yours, as I am hoping to do mine this winter as well and would love to get it done there! Please post what he says if you check with him.

    Sherman Packard in Londonderry was who President Rick recommended for my '90 GT's top... He's done several cars for club members and is well known in the hot rod community. He did a rear window-panel replacement for mine only a month or so ago. I will probably have him do the rest next summer.
    He works out of his garage and does fantastic work.

    Now you can compare prices of both. And some of their work.

    I stopped at American Auto Seat Cover yesterday and spoke with both Bob and Ben.. Bob was working on what he said was his last convertible job (a red Pontiac) as he is closing his shop and both Bob and Ben are retiring.

    I'll contact either Sherman Packard or someone said there is a place in Lowell that does tops..

    Thanks

    I just has Sherman replace the top on my sons car Tuesdsay, it came out FANTASTIC... Sherman is a great guy, I highly recommend him. Now I need to hit the a salvage yard to get a rear defrost switch and see if I can find the two wires that attached to the defrost grid..

    I also had the A/C recharged as it has never worked since I got the car, the shop said my CCRM is bad, they can jump the signal pins in the CCRM to engage the compressor so the A/C does work. I found a Youtube video that shows using a $5 relay from Radio Shack and replacing the bad relay in the CCRM, that will be my weekend project.
