i have a targa top with a crack, it appear to be plastic not glass?
if it is plastic i was thinking about repairing the crack and painting it.

does anyone know what it is made of?

** I am adding this after the original post: looking at the Targa Top it appears to be made of a high quality plexiglass material.
i found this link to be helpful: http://ask.metafilter.com/45769/plexiglass-repair

but i need some input from those of you that have had a crack or know someone who has had one to reply to the post and let me know what you did and how you did it and the results of the REPAIR ???

it's pretty bad when you have to reply to your own posting.
i am not sure that all of them are made of arcylic, but some are. my roof is made of arcylic. so i will be repairing it and painting it myself and save somewhere in the neighborhood of $600. YA

Does anyone know if the acrylic is available by itself and I can have it professionally installed in the frame.

There are several companies out there that do this. Astro-tops comes to mind.

I would do a search for glass tops, etc.

I will say that if you decides to repair it yourself be sure to drill a stop hole at the end of the crack.
