Nope not me But that seems like a good way to go. Cover it to keep it clean and make a simple hoist to put it up and take down.--Fwiw--Keoke

I'm desperate for some ideas.Thanks stinky60

I will store my AH Hard top over my MG TD but I never have the
courage to put the MG under the Hard top
So just yesterday I make a little trailer with four wheels
with two 2 cm plywood panels one cm 125x60 and one cm 125x40(base)
I am one animal no shots of the trailer build but are very easy
to make
-I have no idea that something can have the same problem

Google for "Hard Top Storage" or "Hard Top Removal".

Several of the Miata, Jeep, and Mercedes folks have web pages showing ideas.

Here are two:

1) https://www.jk-forum.com/showthread.php?5559-Hardtop-hoist-storage-write-up

2) https://www.zianet.com/SLlover/page62b.html

MY Miata has the best solution... At the touch of a button, the hard top folds up and stores behind the seats.


Now... I've got to figure out how to get my Healey to do that.
