Hard top storage

Does anyone have any suggestions for easy hard top storage? I was wanting to attach it to the ceiling of my garage. Looking for ideas from those with experience. My old top for my 77 wasn't worth being careful with. But the 04 I just purchased is like new.

Thanks for the help.

I bought a cheap hand winch from harbor freight, 12 eye hooks, 4 single roller pulleys, 2 double roller pulleys, 4 small and 4 large quick chain links, a small "D" ring, some rope and some cable clamps.
I had the platform from a hardtop dolly I built....60''x30''

Most of the supplies i used.


Put the eye hooks in the joist and in the platform, hung the single pulleys from the ceiling, put 2 mor eye hooks out in front center so I had a straighter pull to the winch and ran the ropes.


Had to make s guide in the corner for the winch strap



The hardest part was getting the platform to lift up level.

I did it with 4 eye screws and 2 ratchet straps for about $10.
