So i was going to school earlier today (5pm) and i just felt a giant vacuum inside the cabin i look up and my targa was in mid flight. there weren't enough curse-words to describe how i felt. It almost hit an SUV that was behind me, good thing he was paying attention. I turned around and picked it up. It fits but its all scraped and bent. :bang: i think it can be repaired but i dont know, :confused: ill post pictures tomorrow.

04-19-2012, 10:29 PM
Dont feel like crap man...i would laugh too. i would like to see the inside of a glass top first and then ill see if i like it.

If you can't anything but the glass ones, you can paint it. They end up looking like the regular ones. Do they only come in fiberglass and glass?

Ouch man =(

The one time I forgot to lock my driver side T top I heard a whistling while going down the highway.
By the time I figured out where it was coming from, I saw the T top start to lift off, somehow I managed to get my hand out and hold it just enough to keep it from flying while I found the nearest exit lol.

fparts was a no go.. can't find the roof anywhere, mine is just scratched up.. maybe ill have it sanded and painted black, anyone heard of anyone trying that before?

My little sister borrowed my C5 and left the targa top unlatched, so on my way to work at 5am the next morning the top flew off while I was merging onto the highway. It was pretty scratched up but not bent. I sanded it down and covered it in a Carbon Fiber vinyl, as well as the halo bar, that I found on eBay. You just have to be careful to get a vinyl that is wide enough to cover the top with a single piece so you don't have any seams showing. It is a way of copying the ZR1 look on the C5's. Mine was tan, so it didn't stand out to much. Hope that helps. I loved the way mine looked.
