Question Covertible top installing

I just got a covertible top from Cabrio World with heated glass. Does anyone have instructions on removing the original top and if I could use the original frame for the new top? Any info is much appreciated!

Replacing the top is a very labor intensive job best left up to the pros unless you have experience installing them or help from a friend who does.

From what my mechanic tells me, it's not all that hard, it's just very time consuming and requires a second set of hands at times to fit it properly. Of course, he's a professional Porsche mechanic and installs and repairs parts on Porsches in his sleep!

Spend a couple hundred bucks and let a trim shop install it for you the right way and let them assume the risk of getting it wrong.

I guess you're right, better safe than sorry. I live in Seattle WA., any recommendation on a reliable shop.
