Hey boys & girls, I don't do cars BUT.
My neighbour has a Mitsubishi eclipse rag top (this years)  with two 6" slashes on one side of the roof, one of which just go's through the second layer, inner roof ?
He has been quoted 4000, I guess that's a whole new roof ?
Is it feasible to go a decent patch job ?  & whats it take to get it off the frame ?
If you need piccys, it's about 100yards from me, so no problem there.  ;D

Hi Grebo:  I am not sure how that translates into dollars, but sounds expensive to me.  I can do most convertible tops for $2500.00 or less, but I admit to never having worked on that car.  Tops do not patch well and I would highly recommend replacing the top.  All those staple holes will weaken the top and I would not guarantee it to stay in place a highway speeds.  Most tops are stapled onto the frame, but like I said, I have never installed a top on that make and model.

What a coincidence! Just got the June/July Upholstery Journal today, and that very car is mentioned in an article about the three categories of convertible top replacement: Least expensive/time consuming, more difficult/time consuming, and most difficult. The eclipse falls into the more time consuming category. There are some pictures of the disassembly, and they promise more details on their website.

Cool.  Is that the one you can get on line access to ?

Good point I hadn't thought of the speed of the thing. mike
