Good point and that is one of my concerns. Unless something changes in the near future I plan on keeping the car. If I am going to do anything with the top I will replace it before I dye it. The key factor in that is when I do decide to do it it will all depend on how much work has to be done to the bare metal in order to replace the top. Cost is definetly going to be the driving factor no matter what. And this is because it is not a numbers matching car.
