I live in Akron, and I personally had a helluva time finding a boat cover or upholstery/canvas shop that would work on my top in this area. Nobody wanted to touch it. Then I heard about Erb's Tarp Shop in Amish country (Millersburg, by Walnut Creek). It's about an hour drive from Akron, and it does take a few weeks (he does everything by hand), but the results are amazing. I found an almost new top on craigslist for only $50 because all three zippers were shot thanks to owner idiocy, and now it's like out of the box mint . . . his info is below, and he uses an old-fashioned party-line phone that he shares with other families, so make sure you listen for directions then leave him a message and he'll get back to you within a day. Good luck.
