    With some people preferring to use the soft top all the time, and others using the tinted plexiglass top, I figure there may be someone sitting on an original Tesla clear coat carbon fiber roof they are looking to sell. Let me know.

    Thanks.

    I have one for sale. Only used one season. Perfect shape. Looking to sell as I got the glass top.

    I'll take some pictures when I get home from the Texas Rangers game. Pm me any questions or ask them here.

    Bob.

    home but it's pouring rain in Dallas, will try to take pics tomorrow and figure a price. I imagine shipping will be the biggest cost. I usually use my shipping service as they package everything but might cost more.

    Bob, take your time. When you have a chance send over some pictures. Do you have a price in mind? Actually it may be easier, you can email me directly from my ID on the left side of this page.

    Got it. Will try to email you later in the day. I have some errands to run and a research paper to crank out but should be able to get you some
    Pics and a fair price.

    Just sent you another pm/email. I'll email you the pics but also post in the forum.

    I have had the hardtop since purchase but only used it one season. It's been in it's bag hanging as you see. It comes with the allen ratchet thing, and I think that long allen wrench.
    The soft case is pretty nice and has this fabric envelope thing that I keep in it like when I bought it. There are no imperfections at all and everything fits.

    The only issue I had was that the hardtop squeaked when I installed it and rubbed the clear on my rollbar. I read a thread that sometimes the service center can fit it better to get it to work.
    I noticed if I tightened it down in a weird order or too much on one side at a time instead of slowly all around it would squeak.

    Desi, your Roadster is beautiful! I'm glad you picked the electric blue and added the CF accents so I could see what mine will one day look like ;)
