I did a lot of searching myself before I did my top and never found one. I didn't find the Sierra PDF until after I had my top installed. I used the BMW factory TIS for most of the guidance. There's a copy hosted on a Russian BMW enthusiast club site, and Google translate does a decent job of getting it into usable English.I read it as well, but still now sure I can make it on my own. I also googled for some video tutorial, but have not found any
Congrats! :clap:Once everything was snugged up the seals aligned tightly and no cutting is required. The bow was sooooo incrediblybtime consuming. Probably 80%+ of the time I spent was in dealing with it.
Looking really good so far!
Thanks!The whole project took me two weekends with some hours in the evenings in between, but I also replaced both lift cylinders and worked out relocating the pump to the trunk area. I've seen a DIY where they replaced the top canvas without removing the top assembly from the car. I believe one could work through that in a weekend. I'll try to find that and post it.
I got mine through Autotops Direct and it was manufactured by Sierra Tops. No fit issues at all.I bought new soft top from topsonline.com and asked my local dealership for replacement. Unfortunately new soft top does not fit....rear leak which is going to aluminium profile (C profile) is 1-2 mm bigger. Anyone having simillar issue?
