Call Mike at Classtique. He can give you a quote or go to their web site and look at their price list.

Buy a video on installation while you are at it.

$1,000 for new irons & bows if needed (which will also need to be painted).
$500 for a top kit.
Maybe around $700 for someone experienced to install it.

Absolute best case is if your irons & bows are real good and you can install the top yourself... Look at several cars like yours with very good tops and take lots of pictures before you start.

Also check Snyders and Langs online catalogs.
Snyder's;

Lang's;
$399.95 + $54.95 for the pads. Snyder's kit may include the pads.

If you decide to buy a kit from one of the general Model T parts vendors, ask them first who their supplier is.

IMO, Classtique kits are superior to Cartouche. I have used both, and in my experience the Classtique kits come with more padding and more extra material on the edges, giving more room for adjustments.
