My roof started to peal away today and I was wondering, is it easier to replace the roof or just remove it and make it a hard top?

Easier, probably just replace the roof. If you make it into a vinyl less. It will probably get expensive, as you will need body work.

I figured that but I just needed some input. Thank you. Someone quoted $400-$600 to replace the roof. I'm not sure if this is a decent price or not. Any idea?

It was either here or on ISSF that someone tried to de-roof a broughm. The rear glass was either different or the trim was the problem, besides the glue all over the roof.

Try Bodell in Burlington [or is it billerica?] For the new vinyl. They've been around for ages and did my brothers town car headliner

I was over there a few nights ago, looks like they're done. Might want to call before you go there.

Wow, weird. I know there was an older guy there, they did a convertible top on an old Impala for a guy I know back in maybe August?

the sign was taken off the building and it looked empty inside, could be a remodel but it looks like the end of the biz to be honest
