FS: Boxster Hardtop

In response to some questions about this item I have updated this ad to show additional detail.

This originally factory Boxster hardtop has been slightly modified to work as a Spec Boxster hardtop but could be restored to streetable shape with a little work and the addition of a headliner. Or use it as a Spec Boxster top yourself. It retains the original glass window with defroster circuit! (glass is easy to clean, maintain and keep scratch free at the cost of perhaps a pound [or so I'm told]).

Color is one of the Porsche dark blues of the era. Top is on the peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area. Price is $600 as is, where is.

Two surface flaws:
  • RHS behind side window opening: a scratch (visible in photo). Not deep though, nothing a well-placed sticker wouldn't fix.
  • LHS behind side window opening: a deeper scratch, this would require some very minor filler. Not an issue if you're prepping for repaint anyway. If the color is fine then fill and place decal.



This next photo shows the absence of the headliner.



This photo shows the defroster plug and the driver's side B-pillar attachment mechanism. You can see the handle was trimmed slightly to accommodate my safety cage but it's still perfectly functional.



This last photo shows the portion of the roof structure that was cut away to make room for the safety cage. There is a similar cut on the driver's side. This is by no means the full extent of what can be removed to make a Spec Boxster top; in fact it's probably the minimum.

Well, apparently I have the headliner somewhere in my garage too.

The top is sold. (Headliner still available) Thank you.

What's the etiquette for posts of sold items? Delete them? (is that even possible?)
Edit them to say sold so they don't move up?
