How long can I leave the top down?

Recommended Posts

Have a 2001 C4 Cab - how long can I leave the hard top installed before it causes problems with the canvas top?

Thanks.

30 years? I have had mine on a 2003 C2 (glass rear window)for 6 months with no problems after I took it off. My car sat in a dealer on consignment for ~9 months I have never had any problems with it other than the normal creases from folding. I also use Raggtop convertible top products on it. If you fold it down dirty you are likely to get more scuffing etc from the dirt. YMMV

I use a piece of Burgundy colored felt (matches the Arena Red paint) on my 2000 C2 Cab to protect the plastic window. Other than that top is down for months at a time when the Hardtop is fitted.
