Whats broken? The material or the hardware?

You can buy a new top (material) for about $150.00, but install is another story.

^+1, what is broken, or at least what does it not do that it is supposed to?

$500 to $2500+ depending on what is broken and whether or not you will be paying someone else to do the repairs--which brings up another point, if you are not able to do your own repairs buying as 11 year old Mustang (especially a convertible) could be pretty much the same as buying a hole in the ground into which you dump, money...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

Is it just the top material that needs replacing? Here in San Diego it runs $620 for a new top installed. From what I have heard other parts of the country are higher in price.
