package,Being a Michigan resident, I too am interested in some type of hard top. Unfortunately, the Buttress design makes it VERY hard to have a coupe looking top and maintain the current look of the car. Matt's design is one very good compromise, but obviously, not everyone is going to like the changes necessary to provide trunk access.
So here's an Idea... what about a HYBRID? A hard top with cloth buttresses? or even some type of swing away buttress that would move out of the way to allow trunk opening? The main top would look like a cloth top that had the buttresses chopped off. The buttress itself would hide the hinge that permitted it to swing out of the way for trunk access.
Matt, any chance EDAG would like to take that one on as well?
Have you been sneaking peeks at my PM's to Matt? :lol:
He's been kind enough to listen to 2-3 of my ideas along that very line. :yesnod: I'm hoping something comes of it.
