I removed the hardtop by myself, with a 10 yr old boy directing (and guiding the glass) and set it down on the DIY dolly
. I am 5'9" and 180 lbs. Yes, VERY AWKWARD! But can be done.
3-4 people would make it a breeze and no worries of scratching or dropping then.
Mine is on the dolly, inside my winter motorcycle tarp, on my back patio, up against the house.
