Jeff - This might interest you... there a little rough and not cheap but I certainly haven't seen many out there.

Thanks Robert - I have seen those, they are way worse than mine. I wouldn't give 'em $185 for the pair.

They are/were cracked in several places, mainly on the tops around the 3 screw holes. On mine most of the screw holes are "busted out" (plastic gone) I took them to a guy to repair them and I even supplied some donor pieces. We dicussed plastic welding in the missing pieces then doing "body and paint" on the upper smooth sections leaving the lower textured parts alone. Well the dumbass ended up filling in everything with bondo, even used it on the lower sections ruining the texture. I was pissed and I didn't pay him. I had another guy paint 'em for me - they will do for the time being but they will start cracking again - funny how people don't listen to you when you explain what you want. As you know these convertible panels are almost priceless and I thought I made it clear to him too...I'm still pissed!

Sorry to make you revisit that nightmare. I could write a book about people not doing what I ask (and pay for). From building a truck that took over 2 years, to painting my Rt, to painting my Ram. People seem to not take me seriously. I blame it on me looking younger than I am.

Maybe I should get a look at the two sets I have. I know one set has speaker cut out in them.

I've also been hunting for a set of these for years. I haven't seen them for sale EVER. Just these one's on eBay which are a little worse or equal to the set I have now. I've actually gone so far as to visit plastic fabrication spots to see if they could salvage, save, or repop mine. No luck what so ever yet. Thanks to Dodge for the 1 year / 1 model parts! haha. It's the reason I love Chrysler products more than any Chevy / Ford. They aren't a dime a dozen. But Argg!!! These pieces are the bane of my existence.
