Does anyone have a recommended Site for the roof motor?


I am concerned that my 12 years old cloth top might not be up for it... It still looks good, no tears.
Pretty much anything you need to know about E85 tops can be found here:

In addition to the motor I highly recommend you buy the hydraulic system repair kit. It has all the minor bits and pieces needed to take care of anything you drop, break, lose, etc. and new copper seals and banjo bolts for the hydraulic lines.
