I may have missed this thread, but did everybody agree to ignore the wrinkles in back of the roof and deny their existence to anyone that asks? :nopity:

The first rule of Roof Wrinkles is, you do not talk about Roof Wrinkles. :jester:
Or lack of trunk space, or difficulty accessing trunk with roof up, or a slightly more compicated top operation than any other roadster on the market, etc etc etc :lol:

I think we've all mutually agreed that with the top coming right out of the back it's gonna be wrinkled but once it's up it will be pulled tight and then the warm sun should smooth them right out. Perhaps Excelsior will chime in on this thread and let us know what is up with the top. I myself am not that concerned, the roadster isn't all about how the top looks anyway! :cool:

I think we all understand that she has a few flaws, but she's beautiful and we love her anyway! ;)
Oh, and for me, the top will only be up in the carport and the 2 times a year that it rains.

Guilty

Call me crazy, but anyone leaving the top-down while parked is going to have many visitors (some of whom may endulge themselves by leaving with your factory radio, shades, and/or car itself).

Also, not a big fan of birdsh*t, or the smell of leather after a spring rain.

:nono:

I had a 1995 BMW 318 with the same type of top operation. Wrinkles weren't really a problem after the top was up for a little while. I would imagine the Solstice will be the same.

:lol: Who steals a factory radio? I understand your point, but I see nicer drop tops parked with the top down all the time and nobody messes with them. Don't you got that insurance? :)

Every last one I have seen were wrinkled. But still I think if it was up long enough the wrinkles would smooth out. I'm sure there is a fix if not.

By the time all of the astonished and awestruck spectators finally get an opportunity to look for any roof wrinkles, the sun will have done it's job and ironed them away. I for one don't think the wrinkles will be anything that will be looked at except by envious foreign car drivers who are looking for something to pick about. I can take it. :cool:
