Black hard top on Phoenix Yellow vert

Been keeping an eye out for a hard top and black ones are all over the place. I've yet to see a single PY come up.

Since the vert cover is black anyway, would it look weird to have a black hard top?

Photoshop anyone ?

Buy the cheapest top you can find in any color and spray it to match.

As jwalther said, find the one in the best condition and cheapest then paint or wrap it. I personally wouldn't have two different colors on my car but to each his own.

like you said, pretty much no difference than what it looks like now with the black soft top.
But..it looks nicer/cleaner with bodycolored top. PY isnít my favorite color but seeing some cabrios with the matching hardtop looks pretty clean.

I have a leguna secs hardtop I plan on either painting or wrapping to match my vert. I'd like to do the wrap, but I'm afraid the wrap will be "off" and not match the rest of the car but idk

Should be so easy to wrap the top. It's a giant rectangle
