I agree, way to much $$$ for what they are supplying.

In reply to # 1501156 by tirnipgreen I just looked at that one on Craigs...

Is the backlight glass seal cut in two pieces...? Where's the chrome trim strip in the seal...? Where are the interior finishing panels...?
Where is the headliner...? The hardtop panel seals look funky. The hardtop panel has the bolts sticking out of it...no captive nuts...!
Where's the soft top...? Where's the soft top frame...?
The paint looks nice...

Just sayin'...Ryals

It’s original...I recognize the trim on the backlight. It’s ancient and not so easily sourced. No the seal should be one piece but it’ll need replacing regardless.

The headliner is there...it’s just black and not very well done

Bottom line it’s silly money and will more than likely sit

The one item that was missing when I purchased my surrey top were the 2 Escutcheon plates (#611668) located on the top rim of the backlight frame where the bolts go thru to hold the top mid roof section on. I couldn't find a source for them so I prototyped one on a 3D printer to make sure it would fit, then made them from steel. They work good, I painted them white because my headliner is white.

You're right Todd. I did see the ones TRF had but at $25 each, I couldn't see spending $50 plus shipping for a couple pieces of stamped sheet metal. I should have checked to see if Revington had them but still at their price and shipping it would be in the same $50 range. So I spent an afternoon in the work shop and had fun doing them. Instead of having ones made from 20 gage sheet metal, I made mine from 11 gage stock. These little plates were the last two things I needed to finish off my surrey top. It still worked without them but it looks nice and finished with these installed.
