    Very interesting! I’d hate to feel how that would be under the Florida sun in summer.

    @Agent Orange: Speaking of heat....

    "Things to consider in buying a Bubbletop:

    It's not optically perfect. It is better than a vinyl back window.

    All-around visibility is similar to 'top-down'.

    Because the whole assembly is somewhat flexible, there is are specific instructions about how to achieve optimal fit and sealing on your particular car. You must read the Owner's Manual, and follow directions. Some attention and supervision is required for use.

    You can scratch or scuff a Bubbletop. Minor scratches polish out. Wash by hand with clean towels or sponges- mild soap only- and lots of clean water. 'No touch' automatic washes only. No brush washes.

    Cold weather is no problem. You can use your Bubbletop all Winter, but be careful not to scratch it with a snow scraper or brush.

    When the outside temperature is over 90 degrees, You'll want your A/C working properly. Using your Bubbletop might be seasonal in your area. (Fall, Winter, Spring- partial Summer- for example.) Some people tolerate heat better than others. Evaluate carefully for cars with no A/C.

    Remember, it is easy to take on and off."


    Sounds like he is just saying it is going to 'get hot in hur' with the top and above 90F.

    It's neat, just not feeling it.

    I like how they try and sell it but never get to pricing. I would use one.

    Stevan (Rogue) has a bit of knowledge with these. I know he has seen at least one intact, one that exploded to bits when dropped on it's corner. It's a neat idea, but not sure it's for me.

    Needs to be about 20% smaller and more tapered toward the rear IMO.

    I keep hearing about transmission tunnel heat but have yet to feel it. And that is both of my NBs.
