Plastic window replacement

Long story short.
My plastic window sucks and needs repair.
Anyone know a place in Orange county that can do this?
Sew in a new window or replace top altogether and get a glass window?
Any recommendations is appreciated.
Thanks

I spoke with guy that had his top repaired at AAA in Costa Mesa.
They been in business 15 years.AAA Convertibles & Sunroofs
I don't know if they do just the plastic glass replacement or not, couldn't hurt to call them.

I just looked at the paperwork on my car of who the previous owner used for the top replacement. They used Auto-B-Craft Collision Center in Long Beach. Auto-B-Craft Collision Repair Centers
OEM top replacement under insurance, was $1,150.00 done in Mar 2012. before I got the car..

Hope that helps

My window is starting to separate at the seam, and feels really brittle now that its getting chilly.
Most of the estimates to replace the window hover around $750, as they still have to take the top off, and about double that with a new top.
I may just bite the bullet and put a new glass window top in and be done with the damn thing.
