Help with install

I wanted to see if there was anyone in the VA area that could assist me with installing my fiberglass hardtop. If anyone is willing to help and has experience drilling the new rivnut locations even better!
I will need to drill in new rivnuts and if anyone has the tool for this I can borrow I will pay shipping to and back from RVA.
I'm willing to pay with a nice bottle of bourbon or couple cases of beer of your choice!

PM if you can assist!

Thanks in advance...Matt

I did mine for the first time this year and it really wasn't hard although I didn't need to install new rivnuts so no experience with that. As for the top itself it is very straightforward just be sure you have someone else to help with the top most piece of the install as it is very hard to maneuver alone.

I have attached the factory directions for the top. Oh last piece of advice based on my install was to put the screws in the top most piece at the windshield header before any of the other top bolts. If you use that as a start the rest can be installed with some minor adjustment if needed. Also be sure to put some strip caulk (3M) around the screw holes at the windshield header to help with water leaking which is common there.
