Unhappy Newest member of the Flying Roof Club

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. i think it can be repaired but i dont know, ill post pictures tomorrow.

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.
