Since we don't have a place to hang out, let's use this for all our questions, info, and vert related topics just until we get our own sub-forum.

OK, I'll throw out a question:

Parking the car for the winter, is it better for the soft-top to leave it up, or down in the recess (with the hardtop in place) ? I have a hoist but it's not a stellar design, I can get the hardtop on/off myself but it's a minor PITA; I like to ride with the hardtop on in the late fall and early spring, but didn't bother to take it off to put the soft-top up for winter parking ast year. I feel like either way is bad for the top (up = fully stretched/torqued, down = stuff gets pinched) but not sure which way is worse to leave it. My top doesn't seem to have suffered in any way from being down all winter last year. Since the car came with the hardtop (from factory), snow tires, and mudflaps, I'm guessing prior owners drove it in the winter and left the hardtop on all winter.

Fortunately my top has never given me any issues.

Oh, and for reference, a video of my Reinhold module in action. [A second triple-unlock would have rolled the windows down after putting the top down]

good question... I would think leaving it up possibly would be better instead of it being folded down so long... but one of the guys that use a hardtop would give you a more precise answer.
