Damn! Yes, that would absolutely go right through the soft top. Well, the OEM one anyway. Don't think the TrekTop would stand up to that either. Would be an excellent way to get an AEV hood though.

I think THAT would go through most HARD TOPS....... even if it did not.... sure would SCREW UP a paint job.....
