Here is what TopsOnline customers are saying...

Hello Vic.... I just wanted to thank you personally and let you know how pleased I am with the top, headliner and boot I purchased from you. Beautiful fit and finish, looks just like factory! This 1990 Jaguar XJS is my personal car. Great advertising for your tops and the services we provide! I will be calling you soon to order a top for one of my customer's cars, a 1971 Mustang. Keep up the great work!

- Michael D. (AZ)
