GAHH Top question..

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere on this site, but

1) are there still glass window separation problems with these tops? read some horrible stories on renntech about a guy who had to have this top replaced three times due to separation problems immed. after installation.

2) are there any engine bay access problems.

Thanks again.

do search the threads. There's pages and pages of discussions about it.

Early GAHH tops did separate, but they got it fixed.

There is a small amount of engine access issue, but it's not hard to unbolt a couple of things and get more access if needed. The only reason to be up top is engine air cleaner and MAF replacement, so it should not be a decision factor in my book. I'm getting one later this year.
