Nice video Mike good review for me, having done it a few times now myself.

I would just add to be careful if you are removing or installing it in the garage or any inclosed space. Be aware of what is above the roof. I almost put a big scratch in my painted roof panel from the garage door opener the first time I took it off in the garage.

He missed the pinched seal on the passenger side when he installed the top. Sorry, but you do need to check both sides.

I always remove it and put it back on with my wife. Haven't tried doing it alone yet.

Good tip when doing it alone about balancing against your chest.

Also don't forget to open the hatch on the coupe as the very first step. That way you are not having to put the top down or have to struggle to open the hatch.

I have found in the many times I have removed and put back RedHot's roof panel that it is a lot easier to do if you simply open both driver and passenger doors. If you are doing it by yourself as I do, you can then partially step in to the car to better handle the initial lift off of the panel and balance the weight as you take it off of the car. :cool:

Thanks for the video and the comments. I feel like I can now do this without issue.
