UM - Bestop?????

Find an auto shop that does softop repair and they will able to steer you in the right direction.

Building a Jeep is like playing golf, every now and then you get a good shot that makes you believe, hey I can do this!

Look for marine vinyl window material. I plan on using that to make some tinted upper doors for my TJ.

Window

I called Bestop in the past and they directed me to their supplier and I ordered exactly what I needed. Reasonably priced and shipped to me. It is BD Upholstery at 1-800-748-2244 and I spoke with Heather. They are located in CO.

Did you know that BD Company also makes a Scrambler top? They bought Specialty Top Company (formerly Kayline) and reproduced their top. Nice product but a bit pricey: http://www.b-dco.com/ecom/shop/category.aspx?catid=200

I re-did a rear window, to replace the hard, yellow cracked one. Had a terrible time finding 40 gauge (which is needed) that didn't cost lotsa $$$$$ Went with some that wasn't UV treated that I found alot cheaper http://www.yourautotrim.com/40gaclpl.html . If your gonna sew it in yourself, a trick I learned was warm up the vinyl before sewing, needle goes thru alot easier and seals up when it cools.
