glass window tops

Hi ,
this my first post to the group.
I just finished the instalation of an aftermarket top with a heated glass back window. fit is perfect, defroster grids are small and black.
Total time to install was less than 5 hours and no alterations to frame.
top folds just right, but there is slightly less room in the service postion.
I took extra care to clean and lube all pivot points and seals.
I still need to work up a wire harness to hook up the defroster.
FYI: I work in the automotive repair field so my labor times are accurate as is my assesment of the opperation of the top. The window is smaller by 5 inches in height and about 4 inches narrower across the width. but visability from the seat is as good as before, maybe better without the distortion even new plastic has.
the top was made by a southern California company.

Where'd you buy the top and how much did it cost?

There's at least three other threads on glass window replacement tops but this is good info.
