  • Good for you Greg. It’s rainy and dreary here with a high of 69 in the forecast. I’m headed to Rich’s place later to pick up the top hoist that he is so generously giving me. This will make things much easier when changing out the top.

    • It is supposed to be 112 by Thurs/Fri, so I prepped the car today to install the hardtop. Laid down some 3-M Scotchgard clear bra tape on the sail panel - used the strips that came with the car as the templates to cut the 3M tape to size. Will clean hardtop this next week and install next weekend - it then won't come off again until October, when weather "cools" back down.

      • Highest I’ve ever seen is 105. That was high enough for me.

        • Anything over 110 for us is really hot...we were both born and raised here, but even after 70 years, 110+ is stay-inside weather. HOWEVER, having said that, we've been in parts of the world (Philippines, Malaysia, etc) where the temp was 95 degrees but the humidity was in the 90%, and THAT was worse (for us) than 110+ here in the dry desert.

            We have those conditions many times in the summer. In fact, it’s very humid here now.

                    Nice distancing, Ron. Question for you. Have you ever used a contrasting top on the Dusk Rose? The same color looks great, but I think a WW, PW, EB, Cashmere or Merlot would all look really good on it as well. It would be like owning 6 different cars.

                    • Made a trip to Home Depot for some grilling needs. What a PITA! Stood in a long line just to go inside (yes, I really needed this stuff) then they had just one checkout line (self serve of course) operating. So another huge line to pay.

                        I understand completely...same way with HD here. I'm like you in that I only go there if I have to.
