ohioviper I found a busted hard top for cheap that I am going to pick up Saturday.I plan to cut it down to make a short panel behind the freedom panels to make a hard summer top. Too bad someone cant manufacture these. I will post pics when I get it finished.
Any takers. I will go in on a joint venture.We can call it Freedom top plus

dano0726 I used to have an acrylic sky top that seemed to be water/rain proof

MichaelEdwardsDO Find a custom surfboard maker. I'll bet one could up a broken board and make fit. And get some wet okole seat cover just in case

AUskier I have to admit I've thought about this... It would basically be a hard bikini top. The two freedom panels would cover the front and a panel would cover the rear seats back to the sport bar. No flapping plus a good seal when you had the doors on for rain. You could run a duster on the back for more rain protection.

Not sure it would sell like hot cakes, but I would have been interested before I bought a soft top to go along with my hardtop.

ohioviper I wonder if someone could make a panel that would fit in there like the hard top but maybe only go back past sound bar .I bet it would sell like hotcakes .

legitposter SJ999, I don't think this is an area worth exploring. You're trying to stop rain dropping on you but allowing it to flood the back. Sounds like a bad situation all together. Like Blastek said, buy a soft top or run the hard top.

Blastek well, other than duct tape and some ingenuity, run the hard top or get a full soft top.
