    Yesterday, while I was out for lunch, the boys in the workshop removed my hardtop (barstewards)
    I got back to work and had to do a double take.
    My boss, who has always told me that it was a gays car, has spent all day driving it...? ....but he did fill the tank up. :D

    I was happily surprised to see that the soft top and rear window are in near perfect condition, after having spent two and a half years rattling around in the back of the car.

    Drove home late last night, parked up, went in the house, put the TV on, got a cold one, sat down and thought 'something is not as it should be' walked back outside and realized that my car did not have a roof.
    Took me fifteen minuets to work out how to close the soft top......... :ymblushing:

    so does that mean he has 'outed' himself then?

    I take offence when people call me gay for having a car like this, my boyfriend on the other hand doesn't seem too bothered. =))

    Is it normal that you have to pull down really hard on the soft top before you can lock it in place?

    As Seasurfer says - yes it is, roof needs to be taut, should be easy enough for you - try being 5' 2" and reaching the passenger one #:-s

    So....... do you like your new look and drive :coolsteer)

    Yes and no, I think I am going to re-spray the hardtop black and put it back on..... :bulb
    It is a feeling of nakedness and not understanding why you are getting wet when you are driving in the rain, as happened tonight...... :-\

    But seriously, you cant beat it........... :D

    Update.....

    It has become apparent to me this evening that my boss has read this thread and is not happy with the fact that I and other forum members think he is gay.
    (He does drive a Peugeot though)
    The SOB has poured a can of Red Bull in my wind screen washer bottle, you can imagine how the car smells now.......... :ymsick:

    Tomorrow, payback......... :ymdevil:
