To see the smile on her face when I brought back her NEW car was absolutely satisfying.

I'll try to do that when I get some time. Unfortunately, I don't have many of the pictures for a true DIY thread. I'll see what I can put together.
Dude, I would personally like to thank you for doing all that work for someone you didn't really even know.

It has been my experience that just owning the car, and meeting another owner makes you instant friends. Go to ANY Z3 meet, and you will see what I mean.

As far as a DIY for the roof, a chap named Vinci has a great writeup for the roof replacement out there. The biggest difference would be his is for an OEM top, yours is aftermarket.

Here is a link to his PDF: Vinci's Roof Replacement

Again, thank you for doing that for her. It really had to make her day as well!
