  • Hardtop Storage

    Saw this picture and I was wondering what everyone else does and/or what is the FORD recommended method? I tighten the strap on first and then put the dust cover on.

      I cover after the hood has been secured to the cart.

        Don't use the strap. With five hardtops, only one came with the strap.

          Same as shown in the photo. Prefer having the strap directly against the cover.

              I really donít think that the strap does much of anything. My top is stored on the car.

                To my way of thinking the strap insures that if the cart with the top on it should for whatever reason start to tip over it all is going over. Yikes!

                      I just leave mine hanging on the hoist. Have done that for years and no problems.

                        I have a universal cart from my old Mercedes S L and it is much better than the Ford cart. The dealer I bought my car from lost the T bird cart and gave me a discount for it.
                        I have seen My cart on web sites but don't recall the Co. but they are around $100. very stable and easy to move. No strap needed.

                          Is it the white metal one that is bolted together?

                            Funny, never saw this cart advertised as a Bird accessory Bought more than one for storing Cadillac Allante tops when the advertising said they were a Mercedes product. Yes need bolted together ( a10 minute job) and they don't look like they will hold a thing but actually quite sturdy. Guessing they will hold a Bird top just fine. Please don't buy guys 'til someone says they have one and can attest to their ability.
