Any value in a used top

Want to see if there is any value in a used soft top before replacing. In this case the top is in good shape with a clear vinyl window that needs to be replaced as it has detached in the two corners (about an inch each side). I'm looking to replace my top with a new one that has a glass window and it is a shame to toss an otherwise good top. Thoughts?

Based on the lack of response there appears to be no value. In the trash it will go.

Garage
The aftermarket tops with glass window use your existing top hardware and just replace the fabric and window on existing bows. If you can find an 03-04 you can replace the whole thing but I wouldn't toss the old top until you have a new one in hand.

there's always value to someone. i ended up giving mine away to a guy who had a cracked plastic window. at least it wasn't thrown in the trash and someone got more use from it. throw it up on craigslist or in the appropriate section on the forum.
