    My hard top spends 8 months of the year sitting in the weeds next to the house. I just waterproofed the inside the best I could nad ran a bikini for 2 years. When it's parked durring the week I would just throw a tarp over it to keep cridders and tree sap out. Finnaly got a Proper soft top. Doubt I will put the hard top back on agian.

    Topless is the only way to go. I got rid of the hard top and have a soft top for the winter (what little we have). When it rains I throw a tarp on it. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Re: Don\'t be afraid to go topless.!

    I have no plans to ever use my top. I'd like to sell it but here in Arizona there isn't much demand for them. Right now it's in my back yard where it will probably stay until I move. BTW I'm the kinda guy that is very annoyed when I see someone driving a convertable with the top up on a nice day. Makes me think the person driving must be really stupid for spending all that money for a convertable and not using it.

    I think some people just leave theirs off in the rain. Its rather fun driving through a thunderstorm. I will suggest that if you do it in the winter to make sure you have a strong heater. 20 deg outside, 75 mph down the road, and topless. Cold....nah!!

    Wheather here has been great for two weeks, took the top off and it rained like cats and dogs! /forums/images/icons/mad.gif Story of my life... /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif Just going to waterproof it now! Already rubber mated the back cause I haul alot here!
    Oh by the way, Mine when I bought it had never been removed either! Bottom bolts, Rubber goo along the rails, and perfect seals underneath! For 21 years old, these things hold up great! Put the top back on and seals work great!

    I just picked up a soft top, now I'm psyched to yank the hard top and go topless for the summer.

    Good to hear about it up there!!
