We have a series of posts showing removing and replacing the top on PunisheR on the sol forum. two people, two hours. Very straightforward. You can pull the top in your garage, continue to drive your car while you deliver your top to the repair shop.
There is also a thread with lots of pictures where we fully disassembled a used top. A top autopsy. Having done that, I would not want to install a new canvas cover on my existing frame but I am told that people who do this for a living will do it but think more about $500 in labor.
If I were having this done I would replace the side sliding cables as they get a lot of wear and are relatively easy to replace when disassembled.
There is at least one shop in California who advertises Solstice and Sky top replacement. Ship it to someone who knows what they are doing.
