Aftermarket Tops

Been dying to purchase a transparent top for my 84 but at 1200 new I've had to put it off- between the new paint job and an engine rebuild.
My question is-Has anyone purchased and after market top? Or aftermarket weather stripping for that mater. I've seen them at Melrose tops and they run about 1/2 price. The price is attractive but I don't want a cheap product either if you know what I mean.

none right now :(
I have heard all good things about the aftermarket top companies... (I have not heard specifics on melrose tops though)

-The weatherstripping goes both ways, some love the aftermarket, some hate it... I think it comes down to which brand you wind up getting

I bought a top from Thompson Astro Tops about 4 years ago.Good quality,no problems,great service.

An added bonus:My squeaky topped Vette was cured of the squeak.I really didn't expect that,but I sure was happy!:w

looked at aftermarket and OEM weatherstripping...talked to dealership, and with aftermarket shops...then went with GM weatherstripping. If you can stand the extra pain of the bucks coming out of the back pocket...believe the OEM's a better deal.
