I think you are thinking of a "bikini" top. The cover I'm making will keep it nice a warm in the Toyota.

I told you we were going to the mounds and you and Mike had something going on the day we were at the park.

where did you find the material for the windshield? I'll have to go that route once my OE craps out. it's cracked pretty bad on the pass side and I'm sure will get worse at some point. it'll be a bitch to replace with real glass.

I've yet to see it myself, but from what I have been told it sounds like a bad starter solenoid, or corroded cables.

It's in a dirt floor, unheated, pole barn with no lights, so i'll have to check it out Saturday morning for myself.

I'm sure it's nothing major.

I'm more worried about the roadworthyness, since I won't be able to get my trailer out until spring.

I bought my polycarbonate sheet off eBay and cut it myself. You can usually find drops that will fit for cheaper then the whole sheet. I bought it from popdisplays on eBay and would recommend the seller.

If you need to get it to your house let me know. I can get to my trailer.

Borrow some full doors to stop the wind from swirling around, and if you can find one of those windbreakers that goes across behind the seats grab it. I did a bikini top about 5 years back in windy single digit to sub zero temps. While kinda doable with the right clothes it still wasn't the best idea I've ever had

Saran Wrap is better than a bikini top any day
