Installed a new GAHH top, blue on blue

I had a new GAHH top installed on my box over the weekend and thought I'd share the pic.

I was looking all over the web for a blue boxster with blue GAHH top and didn't really come up with anything.

Let me know what you guys think.

Looks great, but use lots of RaggTopp, otherwise it will turn purple.

I have one!

I have the same color combo. I also have the metropole blue interior! Somewhat rare but we are out there. Love the new top. I am looking to do the same upgrade soon.

Thanks! The top was $641 shipped to Hawaii and my local installer charged $450 for the labor (remove and reinstall). Total: $1091. They hooked up the rear defroster for me as well, which is a matter of plugging in the wire.

I assume the top frame is the 3 bow. How well does the top go up/down with the glass window ? What about the service position ?

Incredible!

Is that Lapis? I've been working with Lapis 3A8 over the last few days and got to say that I'm loving it.

Wow - agree with everyone...looks amazing!

My top is still in great shape. The plastic window is starting to show some age, so thanks for posting a great option for future replacement.

My car is Ocean Blue and the top is Metropol Blue.

Yes, the frame is the pre-2003/2004 facelift. I can't comment on the function just yet as I had it done this past weekend and I have to leave it closed for a few days to let the fabric stretch. I'll probably give it a shot when I get back from vacation in a couple weeks. I don't want any hassles before I leave. I will be sure to report back.
