    The previous owner of mine kept hardtop on most of the time even in Fla. I think keeping top down for extended time shortens the soft top life. However We are in Fl. as was 1st owner and heat and humidity is a big issue. Right now it's way to hot for top down and nights are to d amp. The car was 7 years old when we bought it and the top showed abnormal wear from being down almost full time.

      This was the recommendation I got from the FORD VP of Quality at Wixom. He didn't have any suggestions for me when I told him I drove the car all winter with the hardtop on.
