I just looked up the price of a new frame and it was something like $650. Figured $100 was a good deal.

I thought you were getting rid of your soft-top altogether?

I'd like to, so I looked up what a frame costs new and figured that somebody may want to trade my complete soft top for their hard top, apparently that isn't going to fly though.

Like I said, I'll trade you my hardtop for your softtop, plus a $900 handling fee.

While that is a tempting offer, I've found a $400 top nearby, but I think I'll just stick with the soft top for the next few months and see what I end up doing with the car.
