If youre too lazy to manually take your roof off, then youre definitely not going to be able to swap in an electric one

 

i would if it took less then 1 weekend lol 1 weekend of pain is well worth it then keep doing the roof manually, I did not care about the roof when i bought it i just wanted a Del sol lol now it bugs the hell out of me lol

I'd be really shocked if anyone but a Pro could line all the parts up nad be prepared enough to get the swap done in a weekend. It's a LOT of work. There are threads out there documenting the Trans Top surgery required and who will see you the parts needed, it's just not cheap, easy, and when done, you have a lot of tuning to make it work right and you still give up valuable trunk space. Good luck.

MChester is right, I've seen a few threads on it, it is hell of a lot of work, and certainly not a thing to do if the thought of grinding half of your trunk floor away doesn't sound appealing.

 

Although I'd love to have a transtop too, can't get over how awesome it looks, I think it'd be a pain in the arse if it buggered up.

And even as installed by Honda, 15 years down the road, I've heard they are a little tweaky to keep operating due to all the electro mechanical switches and safeties involved. I can't imagine how one I cobbled together might behave. wacko.gif My luck it would get stuck in the up position all the time and I would have to drive around with my trunk lid at roof level for weeks at a time.
