    depends on what kinda shape your seals are in my are dry rotted all to s*** so when i take mine off in a couple days the seals will most likely turn to dust and blow away :D :haha:

    but who cares. i've heard some guys tops have stuck to the seals etc. which damaged them anyway i say the hell with it it's gettin hot take that mother off but be prepared to possibly replace the seals ;)

    Ha ha ha

    Thats what my DAD said when I was 17

    When you put your top back on just be sure to add some new weather stripping, we used this two sided sticky adhesive stripping. No leaks. I get more condesation on the inside roof from snow than anything.

    Take that top off so nice in the summer :cool1: To bad my area has too much crime, tops staying on this summer :(

    heres an idea!

    High crime area??--make a "soft" top frame,and use barbed wire to fill in the spaces to make a "top"!--that'll make them think twice about reaching in to steal anything!--you could hook it to an HEI coil too,sort of an "electric fence" for the K5!---...
    I can hear it now--"hey look,a stereo!--I can just grab it and, RRIIIPPPP ZZOTTTTTT!! AHHHHHHHH!!!" :yikes: :rotfl: :haha:

    Taken mine off twice and reused the old gasket both times, still no leaky. Take it off and enjoy! :thumb:
