so, basically anything that could prompt thought and a practicle application...

Re: ideas on hard tops or equivalent...

Well i dont own one YET but i'll be going for a factory hardcover for sure. A few guys have got aftermarket ones which are pretty much identical, be patient and im sure they'll let you know where to get them from.

If you're talking about the FPV day then yes im going.

Re: ideas on hard tops or equivalent...

I think people have used boot release solenoids or similar to integrate a hard cover into central/remote locking systems. I couldn't give you any more detail though.

Re: ideas on hard tops or equivalent...

I've got a TUFF LID on my AU XLS ute. Its great! It has 3 locking points on the back and can removed in less then 5 minutes. They show 3 blokes standing on top of it in their adds thats how strong they are. Had it 3 months and no problems. Cost about $1000 and I installed it myself.
