Looking for a Elise soft top. Must be in good condition. Thanks!

Nice, not a big fan of how the car looks with a soft top on but it surely is convenient for folks that like to drive topless.
I agree! Hard top looks great. For me; it would be nice to be able to know that if a sudden Florida rainstorm hits, I’m okay!

LOL, yup shower cap. You can store it behind your seat and use it if you get caught in the rain. It works great for a passing shower and you don’t have a place to protect your car.

I was able to get the soft top behind the drivers seat :)

I read in another post that was possible, but I tried with no luck. Is there a trick? How you did it? Vertically, horizontally, shelf?
Vertically with the seat forward to create enough room for the soft top to fit behind the seat.

I put it behind the seats horizontally. The side rails on top of (top/bottom vs in front of) one another. Its snug but it fits. Slide drivers seat forward all the way, feed soft top in, slide seat back.

Hmm, that is a different idea. So you don't use the bag? Not concerned of getting it ripped by the seat?

No bag and no concern at all. It stays up high so nowhere near the rails. Actually, it fits neatly right under my harnass bar.
