I've searched this forum and google and have not come up with what I am looking for. I found covers you put on the car while leaving the convertible top stowed, but I am looking for a cover for the top while it is up. Something to protect it from UV damage from the southern sun.

I don't want to deal with the bulk of a full cover every day at work.

Does RaggTopp provide the protection I need?

How many hours in the sun will these tops last?

good questions.i will be driving mine to work every day and having to leave it in the sun.i bet if there was a custom cover available that covered the whole top of the car and was held on by two velcro straps to the door handles and the front (windshield) side tucked under the wipers there would be a market for it...not covering any sheetmetal,just the top.

Search again. :)

http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f11/convertible-top-cover-pics-68600/

You might have to contact the guy that made them if you can't find any on eBay.
:agree: I got one from the guy (seller: maginnyna7) and am very pleased with it. I understand his father makes them. However, it doesn't look like he has anything up now or recently. Could be he stopped making them(?)

Try this to see if you can contact him via eBay: http://contact.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?FindAnswers&requested=maginnyna7

Else a google search threw up this email: [email protected]

Don't know for sure if either of those will work, sorry, but worth a try. Good luck.

Post up if you get a response. I'd be interested in something like this as well.

Hope this helps California Car Cover sells a product called California PopTop which by the description is what I think you are looking for they fit on a car with the top up and run from 69 to 74 bucks .I have a few of their covers and everything they make is first class.

Looking at that, I wonder if it's actually the same guy. Price is a little higher (~$15) but the zip code is similar. My ebay seller was from CHATSWORTH, CA 91311, while California PopTop is at 91355. Hmmm.

If he set up a company, maybe why he doesn't eBay any more(?)

They don't list the solstice or sky. Bummer. :( Got my hopes up.

Still haven't heard anything via email.

I will inquire with California car cover to see if they will make one for the Sol.

Got one from them too on fleaBay a while back.
Apparently offers one every few months or so, now alternating between tan and gray.
Be patient and check them out now and then.
You'll get one if you're persistent.

Yes they do. Size C11 (check again)

Car Cover, Car Sun Shade - California PopTop scroll down to the bottom.
Thanks for the link. I went to California car covers website and then searched poptop and then chose Pontiac and they did not have the solstice listed. I see all the different models the C11 fits and it definitely can't look like KappaKadet's. Mmm. Might want to wait a little while and see if I can find one on ebay.

Looks great! Protects the car but still looks great. Do you wear that white helmet when driving with the top down?

Dear Dan,
I don't think a Cabrio Shield will developed for these cars. However, I will keep your details and let you know if one is developed.

Kind Regards,
