Spec boxster top / roof

Looking for a spec style roof for my build...struck out so far finding a used one. Anyone aware of a better deal than from GT Racing?

Shoot Talbot.marshall@yahoo.com an email or look up at Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AdvanComposites/) It doesn't look like his website is up anymore, but he was making them in Texas, I think I paid $450, but shipping was expensive. EDIT: Looked up my invoice, $100 crating, $265 shipping.

They're in California so if you're not local shipping cost becomes an issue like Tim mentioned. They show the top priced at $900.

From what I've seen in the flesh, their fiberglas tops are clearly better formed than those from GT Racing (which I have).

My top is from Sheridan Motorsports. Its a high quality top but a bit on the expensive side.
