Hey i remember reading somewhere that if the hardtop is not stored properly (harness or stand) that it damages it... is this true?
I believe the main danger from a harness is to the rubber seals that the side windows contact. If these are squashed for a period of time, you will have wind noise or water ingress. I'm not sure if you have a metal or Pano roof but I think the seal arrangement is different for each type. My Pano hangs for 6 months in a home made harness which doesn't contact the actual seals at all, and I've had no problems but many people prefer a stand if they have the floorspace. If you're forced to remove the roof by yourself, you really do need a hoist (electric or manual) to be safe. They are fairly cheap to buy and once mine has done its job, I attach lots of rubber bungees for extra safety. Many members have posted photos of their home made hoists. Hope this helps.Hey i remember reading somewhere that if the hardtop is not stored properly (harness or stand) that it damages it... is this true?
That should be fine as long as you have something to keep it from getting scratched. Every one of these cars I have seen is scratched along the anodized strip along the back edge. I'm guessing it is because someone stood it up against a wall and allowed the garage floor to scratch the edge. (including my own car, done by a previous owner)I have it now standing up on the floor leaning against the wall... Is this bad for it? if it is ill be sure to get a stand because i have space for it
