Thumbs up soft top conversion ?

is there any way to convert a soft top to having a flip top like some of the newer ones ? i know alot of u guys are quite creative. i have been toying with the idea and trying to imagine something rigged up. the top half folds back nice to the first support bar, but securing it to prevent damage and flapping, plus looking nice has been a challenge. any ideas guys/girls (besides buying a new top) ?

Man, if you figure that one out, I think you might be a very wealthy Jeeper! Good luck, and keep us posted!
