I removed the soft top from my parts car today and hope to remove the soft top from my good car tomorrow and replace it with the one from my parts car. The parts car had a fairly new tan soft top and the frame seems in perfect condition as does the soft top. My series 4 spider automatic has the original black soft top and the lining has completely fallen apart. The top frame on the automatic car has one broken brace so I figured it would just be simpler to remove the top and frame from my parts car and use it to replace the original on my automatic. So far things are going smoothly. I'm taking photos just to make sure I don't forget something. Will keep you posted as I move along.
