Newer Corvette tops are a whole different animal. A 1994 Corvette convertible top has a suggested labor time of 7 hours for an experienced installer. A top out of Sailcloth with black lining adds another $100 to a minimum of $500 for just the top with a glass window. If the window has a defroster it's another $100. If you make a mistake, it's a very expensive mistake, and then you'll still not have a new top. I would suggest that you just have it done by a pro, and be prepared for some sticker shock.
