Exclamation Smart Top For R172

Just wanted to ask if there is anywhere in Ontario that sells and installs the smart top for the R172? The only place I can find is in Montreal, and since I am driving the MB to London Ontario this Aug I would like to purchase it stop there on the way and have it installed. I can't believe Ontario has not one place that doesn't sell pr install them
Thanks

You'll need to contact them directly. There used to be one in Toronto (they said they hadn't sold item that in years! ) and one in Vancouver (which has finally been deleted).

In all honesty, I'd just get it from the US site. It'll be easier

If you do though, enquire about shipping methods. Outfits like UPS want your first born so be careful in that regard.

Cool

If your heading to London this weekend you should drop by the Cars n Coffee meet at RSP Motorsports on Sunday; you never know who you might bump into....maybe Ranger Ken, who has a smart top; I'm sure he can provide you a few tips on how to install it

As Len says you might be better off ordering one on line and fitting it yourself; the instructions to fit one a R172 are somewhere on this site thanks to a kind DIY member.....looks easy enough apparently

Make sure you report back here if they still sell it.

I am heading to London (Rodney) to visit my Dad the last week of August. When I am there I will hopefully try and meet up with some members there for a coffee.
Reference my smart Top yeah I won't be installing it by myself. If I don't find a company that sells them in Ontario, I will order it through Montreal and will be bringing it with me just incase I find a company or someone that has installed them. I would rather pay someone else or a company more qualified than I and has done a few installations to do it for me this way I know it has been done in a much more timely fashion and and most importantly "correctly" .

Hey. Just wanted everyone in Canada to know the only company that I have found that sells the Smart Top is located in Montreal. I will post the price as soon as they are opened (It's over $500) they are closed for 2 more weeks for vacation. Unless there is a bunch of people wanting to buy them from mods 4 cars i'll be cheaper ordering it from Montreal after taxes and shipping costs. Since I am not doing a group buy on this site to alleviate any problems. Anyone still interested in buying one in the next 12 days contact me and we will work something out.

US price to Canada is $428CDN. Depending on shipping cost it'll be less than MTL pricing.

Does that include shipping and all the ST's for each Province?

You'll have to put it in your cart (I assume) to find that out.

I agree, I'm guessing that isn't included.... Need someone living in Alberta to order them they have the lowest ST's in the Country. Can save some people up to another $50.00 depending on the Province
