Her first question would be safety. If you cut that much roof out you loose some rigitity. How strong is the frame and what is it made out of? I've never driven a convertible in the winter.... When it's -30 how much longer to warm up cabin I wonder?
The roof seams more ridged than ever now, you can grab the sides and they do not move, Frame is made of aluminium box type, powder coated, Drove last night to work, interstate driving, 75 to 85 mph 53 miles one way and 30 deg, seamed fine , the noise level really didn't raise that much at all..

THE WORD LEAKING IS NOW A CURSE WORD, A time out to any one using it.
