Might buy a 1987 Cabriolet it would come with a new top but it has an old one on it. How hard is it to replace? Is this something I can do without a service man?
Here's a couple of websites that show you how: http://www.ehow.com/how_8012362_vw-convertible-top-installation-instructions.html ----AND---- http://www.cabby-info.com/top.htm (Look at bottom of page for the "Replacing Convertible Tops" section)
