|Mom sold the Jeepster||If you need to get the top on/off by yourself, back it in and use ratchet straps / eye screws in the joist to lift it up and keep it hanging there. You can park the nose under it. You can find the joist by pre-drilling eighth-inch holes to make sure it's on center.|

I built a wooden dolly at my old house
You can find plans for building the dolly on here or google hardtop dolly plans...
And at my current house I built a hoist
Using the old dolly...
My garage has almost 10' ceiling

Hard top storage
My soft top should be here any day now, and I need some ideas on storage for the hardtop.
I have one spot I could store it vertical, are the "dolly" type racks sturdy enough, if it needs to be moved around occasionally ?
My garage has a rather low, 9 ft foot finished ceiling, so I would have to be able to hang it almost flush to avoid smacking my head on it, not to mention trying to find the joists.....
.....and I can't store it outside.
So, any ideas would be appreciated.
