storing soft top windows with pool noodles?!

hello all

So I've heard that you can store your rear side soft windows by somehow rolling them up inside of a pool noodle. Is this true and how is it done, because I'd really like to be able to take my windows with me when the top is down and rain pops up.

thanks and pictures would be awesome!

Dang, that seems like a really tight fit, unless you cut one side of the pool noodle so it is more like a "C" rather than an "O"

yeah thats what I was thinking as well. My biggest question is how would you roll around it without messing up the rubber inserts on the top/bottom of the window.

Roll it around the noodle on the outside, not the inside. Lengthwise, so the retainers remain flat, altho' they bend pretty easily.

I just lay mine flat under our bed... the soft top too. That way it isn't all curly when I put the soft top back on during the March fake-out.

Nothing automotive related is allowed in my bedroom.....


I just lay mine flat on the well worn pool table, with the ping pong topper to keep them safe
