    Just purchased my first...2010 Roadster...no convertible boot with vehicle. Any leads/ recommendations on tracking one down? Looked around a bit and not successful. Tan color. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    That's great! I didn't know they made a tan cover.

    If you're talking about the leather-ish thing with the two plastic caps that cover the mechanism when the top is down I'm pretty sure they only had them in black, but I guess you never know. No reason you couldn't make it a different color if you wanted to.

    Yea..that’s what my research tells me too...but black works to! Glad it was located and being sent - get it today. Appreciate the responses!

    Word of advise....When you put the boot on make sure it's tight across the front center otherwise wind can catch it. I have to watch mine at about 110. I'm going to have a hook sewn in but haven't done it yet.

    I know what you mean. Mine's not terrible, though on the highway I can see a little lift. Not that the top doesn't do that on its own without the cover, but the cover is certainly more likely to come off than the top.

    I'm not sure there are any new ones still out there, but you could try Don Scharf. They deal with Viper salvage and would probably have some pretty nice ones. I think they also got the old VPA stock, so there's a chance there could be a new one still in there somewhere.
