Hard top weight?

Post by marinerblueuk » Thu May 22, 2014 4:39 pm

Anyone know how much a factory steel hardtop weighs? Thinking of fitting a hoist and want to make sure it can handle the weight!

I would say between 35 and 40 lbs.

They are surprisingly heavy, I like the idea of a hoist. Mrs T is getting fedup of breaking her nails.

Plastic top is so much lighter, and a genuine one man operation to remove and store.
