Just go slow. 1st time I took mine off I discovered it was held on with strong 2 sided weatherstripping that stuck to the top & to the bulkhead.
You don't want to force it & have the 39 year old top to crack or break where you try to pry it off.
Use a solvent like decal remover or wd40. Test whichever will melt weatherstripping, that is stuck to something on your workbench, 1st.
Once you find one that turns the sticky part into goo that doesn't stick as much, try it along the top of the bulkhead with one of those fine straws attached to wd40 or whatever.
Hope this helps
Shouldn't be too hard to copy those. I'm sure someone could 3D copy those out of plastic. I could cast them in bronze if I had one to reference and make a pattern from. Strange that they all self destruct when the top comes off. Bronze should last.
Anyone know why bronze wouldn't work as well as plastic? Is the top the only thing holding them in place?
Jersey has one that was removed but broke, but I've never seen one that wasn't on a never-removed top.
I have an ACME full top for the Scrambler so I've always thought I'd take this 1/2 cab off, but the more I think about it I honestly hate to remove the top for the first time given that it's been on there since it left the factory.
I do agree it would be easy to 3D print if anyone had one removed that wasn't broken.
I wouldn't think so. The top on this one is very quiet but I think that's probably more due to the top never having been off and the fact that it's been kept either in a garage or carport since new (and only has a hair over 5K on it).
