    Boxster convert. top rear window replacement

    Looking for feedback/guidance: Issue: cracked plastic window on a 01 986 boxster. Top's canvas is in very good condition. I see on ebay there are kits to sew in a new plastic window while the top is on the car. Says it has easy directions to follow. Looks very difficult.
    Second question: Can a glass window be installed and not interfere top being stored when down? Thanks for any help.

    The boxster window is stitched in from the factory and trim shops in the UK canr eplace them for around Pounds250 / $500 in your money - as thing sa re cheaper over the pond i'd imagine you'd pay around $350 for the same service.

    There are glass screened replacement roofs available - this one is about the best there is in the UK and uses the same fabric as the factory roofs...

    Do you have first hand experience of this glass BAS International Cover? I have been considering it for some time without seeing one. Some people told me that the heated screen wires don't look good and that engine access in awkward because of the glass window. Your comments will be appreciated.

    Re: Boxster convert. top rear window replacement

    I've had a quote of $500 US to stitch in a new plastic window. I was just wondering if anyone had tried the 'do it yourself' as advertised by one site on ebay. Also I saw one can purchase a new top with glass window that will supposedly fit an '01 Boxster. Someone else said they thought the glass part might interfere with the 'folding' when it goes down.
