I have a 94 that the Targa glass top has split apart in the middle,the split is going from the front to the back about 7 inches long and about a 1/8 inch wide can literally see thru the split when sitting inside. So I guess my question is, is this typical of this glass top? And wanting to replace it with a fiberglass one, is Melrose a good replacement for it? I'm new to this forum and to my love of my life Corvette that after my 4 daughters grew up I could finally afford to get. Any help or guidance or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help or experience with this same issue.

Well, scruffy, Welcome to CAC. :w I'm going to move this to C4 General to get your questions to the appropriate audience.

Split targa top is not all that unusual. I can't remember whether the Melrose tops are decent quality or not. Hopefully someone else has experience with them and can answer your question.

Your situation is similar to mine...16 years ago I got my third (and last) daughter married off and 4 days later bought my 94, after a 30 year hiatus from Corvette ownership.

Oh, pictures of your C4 would be nice.

The glass top on my '88 split just like yours. I did the exchange thing back then, but can't recall the vendor. Currently on the lookout for a bronze top for my '96 CE.
