Ya mean like one of deez?


I haven't used them meself, but I know several folks that do have them, and they work just fine, in most cases. Not meant to be 100% protection in a storm, but for short stints in showers, they work just as well as the factory t-tops in stopping the wet stuff.....
Just don't like the idea of having to put a velcro tape across the chrome trim to hold the dang things on.

Mine is the type that does not use velco, is great to keep sun / rain out while parked. Is not for use while driving. Stows nicely in cargo area and doesn't take up to much space.

if you are asking about the top raincoat or some name like that, it works great, mine uses Velcro  in the front and back and uses the t-top conections on the outer edge and has 2 strips of Velcro to fasten in the center. the paperwork with the top I believe states a moderate max cruisn speed for the top.(the top will hold at speeds in excess of 100mph for extended times) I had this top on my 78 at the pigeon forge gathering and still have the top. the top takes up little space when off and can be installed (or taken off) without getting out of the vet in less time than it takes for a red light to change colors ( if the weather suddenly changes ).  its the top I will be using on the caravan to BG in august. if you are planning on Friday nite pizza you can examine it.
