  1. As long as you don't move the car, that should work though. Cool stand by the way! I've not seen ones like that this side of the pond.
  2. The bar also gives you the ability to make small adjustments in height and angle of the engine which is helpful in remounting the transmission. Do you have to have one? Nope. But for 30 mins of fabrication, its worthwhile. Im not home now, but can send picturs of my redneck home version once I get back, or you can Google it. Some fancy versions, but simple angle iron and a few bolts work fine.
  3. I put Ben's kit (google it) and it made a noticeable difference in throw and feel. Nice kit and easy DIY.
  4. No problem Roy. If you put the top into the service position, about halfway between up and down and reach your hand up between the liner and the roof and feel up and down on both sides you should feel it. Yes, it goes from driver to passenger side, and kind of pulls the top together and into the groove. On mine I couldn't find it on one side, then found it on the other. It's an elastic strap that is stitched to a tab on the edge of the roof. On mine, the stitching had come undone on one tab and the strap just kind of fell down into the liner. I just fished around till I found it, then sewed the tab back on with a needle and thread. The strap is #7 in this diagram http://www.autoatlanta.com/porsche-parts/hardparts.php?dir=996-99-05&section=811-10
  5. I just sent a "sticky note", with the photo attached. Try that
  6. Thanks Steve. Was your AC blowing cold? Mine seems to be experiencing similar symptoms, but I had discounted gas as my AC blows very cold.
  7. It's right about where the rear quarter window meets the side window. "If" this link works, it shows what it looks like when the strap is disconnected. The strap is basically right where the roof is off the rails. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0sCo0f1h0XUkXB0ErhLxCBLL1xtJMjk55iLsa023cd15M-glLfPYOiUZvYLobih_Kcu6sIR4HfVG_LWRKZzjo1w1XmEaat_2z0dPKh30pM7tzai4OtYzyEiRiDqncAT8XC9ySDVT79Q6woBKi8g7jCpbxJJ6YoCdFBSUJxYpLTH3Wer02IpvAFM5paGHRgDbHmPKOFUNDVs4WwjVdxPc2pzlecmJtbJijIWgTzXUWA_Z-t6LgoszAKbEZ3U5mBnXwaEGJ4_ZxI2ZqRwTHLhldmSplJTbt5E100L63cNz0s5Wdfev_I4Qa2orBoFOsdThGZGuGpC9N69tw4DT708TrMsuG9FE3jKBTxSxYoWxF_U89ww1ulSnQhv1z4HKORaEImrlWMnr5-w94cO7TJC_N-SfAZ69YETRDukkwKUV82P4sTnSpvkbopuqsxoJzGPNhnGJDI2vUy5Zn1U6GTHNuhRrjlyOejQl4UBf6F6k9Ih2bZUDlwtAagaWxlswGS8iani2QnGXKDuAFUAfkle64uRQCx4kOeQnPx7Jxb2E2WLJtGLPtaT5jrxWg554U5AfNPJ_gZKQjchlz7_dUMhlb6Zk2p4KExoDAMD7bqN_=w1223-h917-no
  8. Condenser was leaking and that was the source of low gas?
  9. Put the roof in the service position (about halfway between up and down) and reach in between the liner and the roof. There should be a strap running from driver to passenger side. Mine had similar issues to what you are describing and this strap had pulled off. I simply took a needle and nylon thread and sewed it back on...solved.
  10. Jeff, this can only be done with the factory Porsche PIWIS system correct?
  11. BoxerfanTO, there is an outfit in Calgary that is apparently authorized by Hartech out of the UK (kind of the FSI of the UK, very good rep). I've no experience with them but at least no border or exchange issues. http://alpineautowerks.com
  12. Check the tensioning cable. https://rennlist.com/forums/996-forum/574384-solved-convertible-top-not-folding-closed-quite-right-pics.html
