Here's a guy that uses a lifting contraption. After the cost and effort of installation that contraption, it takes a good five minutes to take it off the car. I don't even want to think about what it takes to get it back on. Not for me, thanks.
I take mine off and on like this guy does.
Takes a few seconds after undoing the latches.
last video makes a ton of sense unless you have a hernia, super weak, or just like gadgets
but i have to agree the first one gives a great idea of storing the top.
"Never used a winch and I've had hard top last 15 years. I loosen the locks, sit on driver seat, grab top from both sides and stand up. Works well fo a 6 foot guy."
You get out of the car and stand up holding the top over your head? I have a hard enough time getting out of the car with both hands free.
