Texas Jim here - I've had near zero success finding a source for a new top for my '23 Touring. Should I expect there are shops out there with this pattern?
Would appreciate tips & resources from those who've bought new tops.

Hi Jim

Well I had my car done at Bodell Auto Upholstery in Billerica Ma. don't think you want to ship from Texas to Massachusetts. There must be some car upholstery near you.

I quite agree -! Did they have a pattern that you know of, or did you obtain a pattern?

Hi Jim
You did see my car on happy birthday dodge, well there was not much of a pattern to fallow, so they did it by photos I brought with me on all kinds of cars, and they just went by that and the top irons. The man that did it was also eighty three years old !! so he did have some idea of it.

Folks, reaching out again if anyone has knowledge of specs or pattern or any resources as to a top for my '23 Touring? My frame is all there and solid.

Jim,

Reach out to the tech advisor for your car. I did years ago and Rodger Dodger sent me copious notes and drawings for my top, bows and window measurements.
Good luck
