    I am in Pa and if I would not have had to work today[​IMG] I would have pulled mine off. I might just pop the top tomorrow if it is nice again.[​IMG]

    Oh that must be nice! I was staring out the window earlier just thinking of better days when I could run topless. Its raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock here, with 50-70 mph winds. I think I should probably leave the top on! ....so jealous of you guys! [​IMG]

    Where did all these damned dirty apes come from!?!

    Bah. I'd drive around with the top off even if it was -10F below, as long as it wasn't raining or snowing.

    If I had a garage and pulleys, I'd have had it off today, definately. But, I'm in an apartment, which sucks. No place to store the top, no easy way to get it off. :-(

    My wife says that you all can kiss her frozen @** with your warm temps. It didn't get higher than -20 degrees up here in the last week. The forecast was for -40, but it didn't get that harsh luckily, but it's coming soon.

    I'm getting a soft top SOON. I had to put my hard top on early this year because I needed it weather proof for a while (I only have a home made Bikini). It's nice out today and I would drive it if the top was off. I guess I'll just have to take the top of My Supra :)

    I have no top, no doors, and no windshield. I went cruising around today for about 2 hours wheeling around. It only got a little chilly at 60 mph at sunset.

    If you don't have power windows and locks it's just a matter of a few bolt to the door. Take some spray paint and spray around the hinge to make some reference marks so you can easily line it back up. I know sombody who made long hinge pins so they didn't need tools to pull the doors on a Toyota.

    next summeri plan on having the doors off most of the time, so when i want to put them back on i'm gonna get a factory radio harness for like a ford or a dodge(look like they are the easiest to adapt) and jut connect the wire all back together with oneor two clicks, note that i've got all power including mirrors

    Its not hard at all, even if you have power windows and door locks. They have disconnects under the dash so you unplug them and slid them through the opening. When you take the hinges off make sure you mark where they went so the doors go back on in the same spot.
