Default targa top

we have a targa top on our 88 coupe. The top itself is in good shape, but the finish is checked, like the sealer or clear is worn. Question is has anyone ever refinished the top? Can it be sanded and re-cleared? asking before I buy a new one. Thanks

Yes. It can be sanded then polished to refinish it. Some reclear it and some leave it after polishing.

There have been a number of threads both in the C4 and C5 sections (and probably others too) that show how they did it and it looks like they had good results.

Sorry, I did not do a search to find those threads, but you can take a look for them.

Good luck.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was searching with the wrong wording, I think that will work fine. I have the supplies and tools to do this so as soon as weather takes a break I am going to do it.
