Hey Trailsnail, although not specifically real near to Cumming, a great auto trim place to check out is Charles Barfield at Marietta Auto Trim. They are very good... May check if they know of anyone closer to Cumming?

Thanks. I ended up getting in touch with Manus Upholstery here in Cumming. I'll report on my repair experience.

Interested to hear how this goes. I need some modification done to my Safari top.

His business has grown enough to move from his garage to an office suite. That's a good sign

Alrighty, got my top back on Friday. I was quoted $135. I had to wait around 40 minutes for my top. Because I had to wait a bit and it took him less time than expected, he only charged $100. There was a little tightness in the lower right corner of the rear window. A little work with a heat gun fixed that. The zipper used is a smaller tooth style that'll hold up better and is less pro to sticking.

I would recommend and use Manus Upholstery again

I only needed to give the lower right corner of the window a short blast with a heat gun to eleviate a bit of pull
