Classic Transport +2 cabriolet

Salut

For those interested here are some photos of the Clasic Transport +2 cabriolet soft-top system (I was told). Looks similar to the original Christopher Neil conversion and just as laborious to put up/take down. I have the later CN system which does away with the extra roof bars - much more convenient but the roofline suffers a little.

I have a cn frame on mine, the rear hoop is hinged from the same point as the main frame, I am thinking of adding a extra cross bar as the hood does flap around over the drivers head.

I had thought about that, too. A curved bar/rod with a bit of spring to it so it could be wedged in place (some sort of fork on the ends) - but not too stiff that it forces the side rails out.
