    Lp640 roadster removable top

    Hello,

    I'm taking my car out of the garage next week It will awaken after exactly one year since I last worked on it. My windshield wiper works perfect so I want to make a top for the car.

    Did anyone design a useful removable top that can mount to the car and it still can be derivable with the top on? The OEM top is $12k used on ebay.

    I saw these online http://www.exoticwholesaleparts.com/...hp?cat=*&pgn=4 and the soft one is on ebay for $1k but it's just canvas without a frame. I don't even know: if one makes a frame for it will it even function with it to be derivable? It is the wrong shape anyway!

    So did anyone else make something useful?

    Thank you

    That top is for covering the open cockpit when the car is parked. It was never ment to be driven under.

    I know. But what if we construct a frame and attach the canvas to it to make a top that one can drive with it on!

    This is also one that covers the car just while it's parked:
    Carkitinc Mercy 2 No Top Rain Cover Replica Kit Car Fiberglass LP640 Lambo | eBay

    But again, to construct a top we can start with one of these two or start from nothing

    I guess they could be made to work, they both would need attachment and sealing issues delt with. I'm working on a canvas top with Aluminum bows now, windshield seal across the top is the big problem so far.
    Street rodders use seatbelt buckles to secure lift off tops, neat idea.

    Any pics or diagrams you could share.

    I'm sure making a top can't be that complicated - I want to see what people have done maybe I get a better idea of what can work.
    And thanx for the seat belt trick bud.

    lol i'm sure you are - enjoy it bro.

    Though it's never the same as convertible - you could go out with the top or off!

    Ta7eyyati mr. maba7eth

    That sounds great!

    When you say you have the original frame do you the real OEM top-frame from Lamborghini?
    Also, are you making it for your own car or for others as well? any pics?

    I can make one - can't be that difficult but I'd rather see what others have and maybe just buy one.
    Update me soon
