Retarded. I cut a nice big hole in mine for a vent and couldn't be happier.

I love mine. I wouldn't pay $1,600 though.

I noticed hard tops in Canada were only around $700. There were several for sale while I was looking. I picked mine up near Toronto for $700.

Give the ebay seller some credit in this case. That ad was well designed! He did a fine job selling it.
