Looking for a new camper top

Hi all,
I recently purchased a 24ft. 1986 Bayliner Ciera. I have the top section of the top that buttons to the windshield but am missing the side panels and rear aft cover. Could someone direct me as to wear I could purchase these items. The only places I can find are custom canvas shows which will cost me a small fortune. Thanks for any help in this matter.

An alternate suggestion, to buying online and or making them yourself, may be to trailer tow the boat to any auto seat cover and retrackable top (convertable) upholstery shop.

In this way the shop owner takes the measurements and makes the covers for you. This ensures the proper sizing and snap down button locations and window locations.

If the shop does it all, they assume full responsibility for the measurements, button and window placements, etc. If you provide the measurements, etc and the finished product does not fit or is somehow incorrect, you're likely to forfeit retune rights and or refund rights.

Based on the fact that the final products where custom made to your specifications, etc. Improper fitting pieces are than worthless. No cost savings to you.

Best to spend more upfront than have finished products which are than useless to you, in my opinion.
