Re-doing a vinyl top is pretty easy, just get the foam, prep the sheetmetal, little scuffing and make sure its very clean, cut the padding shape it to what you want, spray on the adhesive, lay on the padding working from the inside out(middle), after you lay on the padding and after its dried, possition the cut fabric/vinyl to make sure it will fit(good measure) just to make sure, take off the fabric/vinyl spray the padding with adhesive let it get tacky lay on the fabric/vinyl working from the middle out just like before, put the new border on(its sold in kits or in one package) and your done, its not hard just takes time and patients, just grind the pins off and cover with a thin layer of fiberglass, or bondo, or my favorite Metal 2 Metal, its a bit hard to sand but a good filler base, after you smooth it the best you can cover it with a thin layer of spot puddy and seal, prime and paint
