Didn't you see the giant shoe-horn option for extricatingcxcheng said:That sounds good. I figure the hard top is a better theft deterrent especially given the lack of lockable storage space in the car.
I won't be getting my car in a very long while, but my short test drive in the open top Elise tells me that there's no way I'd like to get a hard top without the gullwing feature (still need to test it out in person though). Beyond that, it'll be useful to have some kind of handle bar if space can be found, to make it easier to pull yourself out of the car. What do you guys think?
Good deal - I'm in. Price? And will we be able to order it color matched, or will we have to get it painted on our own?shinoo said:We recently decided to license the Gullwing top design from Autostyle Solutions. We have identified a very reputable composite body manufacturer who is keen to produce them here in the US. I met them last week to review their manufacturing capability. They also have the ability to supply several other 'tasty bits'.
Though this delays our anticipated Gullwing launch, I am quite excited about our ability to produce a product that is of the highest quality at a competitive price.
We plan to have product ready by Spring '05.
The T-Bar is bolted in place. Since you are likely to grab the windshield header at the corner, the T-Bar is not likely to help enough. I suspect the windshield will still flex if grabbed. :no:usofrob said:What I really want to see from the after market tops is a see-through top. It would be even better if it was a gullwing or at least easily removable.
Does anyone know if the tbar part of the top is structural at all? Or more importantly, would it reduce the damage of someone grabbing the window to get in and out?
