thought about getting a hoist but didn't like the thought of the HT crashing down on the 'vert.
scouted around the southwest but found one 20 minutes away! i just had to annoy the guy enough to make him sell.
i've been wanting to put it on for a drive for the last week or two. i think the visibility is better than the ragtop, but nothing beats topless!

Works for me too - I treat it once a year.
I also use a black cotton towel to dry off the roof after washing - no lint!

Just did mine with ragg top cleaner and protectant. Very pleased with the results. I used a lint roller prior to applying the protectant and it worked really well.

I haven't had much time to take a proper solo photo but this is what she looks like currently.

Hello fellow vert owners. I did a search and was happy to find a vert thread. Hope to see a section dedicated to convertibles.

I've had my '05 for nearly two months and loving every minute of it behind the wheel. Spring can't get here fast enough...

Mike
