Default 1993-2002 F-Body FIBERGLASS and CARBON FIBER Targa Tops FOR SALE NOW!!!

Here's what we're talking about for those that don't know (these aren't finished pics, just production and test fit pics)...

McNord designed it so that it would resemble the New Camaro...



...but flow with our cars (down to the U channel for the rain channel)...



He took a roof I sent him, made an awesome design, turned it into a plug, turned the plug into a mold and just sent me pics of our first PRODUCTION top !!!









Hardware isn't attached yet but you get the idea. I just got these from McNord minutes ago and couldn't wait to post.

Ok, so here's the prices and break down...



PURE CARBON FIBER TOP WITHOUT HARDWARE ATTACHED (so you simply unscrew your center t-top bracket, screw our targa bracket on BUT you will need to break your factory t-tops, scrape the glued on glass off the bracket and bolt bracket onto the targa)...$750 SHIPPED


FIBERGLASS TOP WITHOUT HARDWARE ATTACHED (so you simply unscrew your center t-top bracket, screw our targa bracket on BUT you will need to break your factory t-tops, scrape the glued on glass off the bracket and bolt the bracket onto the targa)...$550 SHIPPED
[B]

Here's the skin out of the mold (what you would be buying from us)...









Here it is with the factory t-top hardware (from some t-tops I busted)...









IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO ATTACH HARDWARE TO THE TARGA, OUR TARGA COMES WITH STUDS STICKING OUT OF IT, YOU DRILL HOLES IN THE BRACKETS AND LITERALLY JUST BOLT OUR TOP ON !!!

Hardware got attached in slightly the wrong spot so it won't sit right (I have to unattach and reattach it later) but here's some pics for now...






































This has been a LONG time in the making but it is here and you can place your orders...

Will it sit flatter when the brackets are all bolted up? It seems like the corners are forming a bit of a gap with it just resting in place? Id be really worried about leaks if I have to smash my tops in order to test it... no going back at that point! lol

And also is there a discount if we are able to come pick it up and dont need it shipped?

Otherwise looks amazing!

1. I would buy a set of used T TOPS

2. Mark said he needed to adjust the fit on the T top bracket to get the perfect fit.

Mark, what about the rigidity issues at high speeds? Did you ever figure it out? Also, if you want to go ahead and throw a CF one in with my bumper when it ships, I wouldn't object.

ALL RIGIDITY ISSUES ARE FIXED We have well into the triple digits (155+) taken care of

Pick up WILL save you at least $50...

NICE TO HEAR. I didn't want to have to add an additional latch to be honest, and I my car WILL see 180+, so I'll definitely let you know how it does at those speeds. Now I just gotta figure out how to be able to afford it. lmao Mark, you want a 6 point chromoly rollbar?
