Zein Top For Sale!

Thanks to a member on here with a tip on a Zein Top, I've found one!! But the wife says no. I think I'll keep peace in the house.

Harry, the guy that has the top owned a blue '03 base. He said he ordered it from the company in South Africa. Pictures show the work he put into it, and the lines look great. He has since sold the car but the buyer didn't want the top .

His contact info is; 1-516-779-3622 (New York), asking $4,500, call or text. He's a good guy with a great sense of humor. Good luck to the lucky 986forum member, wish it was me.

Search the FS forum for Zeintop, and you'll see. There are few of these in existence, fewer for sale. Although the designer has started selling them again; not sure what he's looking for in terms of cost & qty to get them to the US

Yes, a VERY nice alternative to the OEM hardtop. Plus, they look really cool. The lines definitely fit the car.

I used to import from China and with all of the hidden costs and arrangements it gets really frustrating. Not for the faint of heart.

A guy on Scarborough, Ontario has an Arctic Silver Zeintop posted on kijiji.ca. He wants 5k, a little over the top (pun) even for something as rare as this.
