Default convertible top installers

guys has anyone used any company they can recommend in Suffolk county, have had prices from 1350$ to $1800, really have no clue as to what do to, the top is costing around 600$ area the price difference is very huge, do you guys know or can recommend someone? the installation is well kind of pricey, what should i be looking at, price wise?

Damn, for that money I'd buy a Smoothline Hardtop and to hell with the other top!

I want a Smoothline so badly, but I can't separate myself with over 2k for the top and then paint.
I also don't want to spend over 1k to replace just the gaskets on my 98 Vert's top.

Decisions, decisions . . .

well the top is on, the freaking guy left it on the yard in his shop and it poured last night, not complaining about the rain but since i needed to cover it, i was using paper towels and blow dryer to completely dry it dont want mold to grow on it, looks ok, some issues but its on and he was able to raise support bar
