One of my T-Tops has been shot with a B-B Gun!
(Or maybe a bird crashlanded on it, beak first)

Any suggestions? Do I *HAVE* to go to the dealer to get a replacement T-Top, or are there other alternatives??

You can sorta see the spot from the picture, but what you can't see, is the 4 cracks that have been spawned from the impact. They travel from the spot, to the borders of the T-Top glass.

I doubt it was a bb gun but a bird, hahahah!
maybe a rock or jealous squirrels. Nice Z though.
Try to find a used top before you spend money on a new one.

Try Motorsport Auto

or try the internet listing of junkyards
www.valuparts.com

I know everyone gives MSA a bad rap for high prices, but I would rather spend the extra little money now, and know I am getting quality, then try my luck at some other S**t hole store and get a bad part...or something that will fail again.

Try a windshield repair place, I've seen chips and 8 inch long cracks repaired and you can't tell at all. Don't know if it would work for you, but its worth a try.
