I made my own some years ago.  Not a big deal if you have an eye for contours/curvatures (No woman jokes here please).  Unfortunately I made one for a BT7 when my car was a BN7.  The one which came with the car was in bad shape and not sure how it got with the car.  Did not realize until later that the two were different until after the bow and top was completed.  Since I almost never put the top on I did not bother and never had a correct one to go by so never made the correct one.Keith

Has anyone made their own wood top bow?  As I'm getting ready to order a new wood top bow for my BN7, and seeing the price, I wondered if I could make my own. I have my own little wood shop, band saw, table saw, router, etc. 
I have not yet disassembled the old top.  I was leaving that up to the upholstery shop so they could see how it all goes together. But then I thought, how hard could it be to make one myself?   A 4 foot 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" stick of white oak will cost me about $20.00.
