The case is the OE vinyl cover lined with egg crate foam covered in British Racing Green felt. The pad fits inside the OE cover and protects the entire painted surface and curls around the bottom edge of the top so that when you stand the top on edge to store it, it is sitting on a pad. It took forever to make this piece.

If you don't have a case, you should! If you already have the OE unlined case, you really need a padded case. The unlined cover will little by little scratch the paint rather badly. Imagine what would happen if you took a piece of vinyl and rubbed it against the paint...it would scratch very quickly an rather badly. The same thing will happen if you store your top in an unlined case. It will take place slowly, but it will happen.

Also, if the top is stored standing on an unpadded end, the risk of damage is much higher than if the end is padded.
