Exmoor Hoop Set Dimensions

Hey folks, so i'm the new owner of an '83 or '84 2 door 110. With the hard top on, it's about 1.5" - 2" too tall to fit in my garage (so close, but oh so far). I'm trying to figure out if I'll fit with the soft top on.

Does anyone have a detailed spec sheet or does anyone know the measurement from the tub rail to the top of the hoops?

Referring to this set:

110 FULL STICK SET, EXT220-3 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts

110 FULL STICK SET, EXT220-3 - Exmoor Trim USA

I've got alternative parking solutions, but I'd LOVE to avoid those. Thanks all!

Given your year, you should have ribs on your roof. swapping that out for a smooth roof will buy you some of the space you need- about 0.75 inches

Yup, i do have the ribs. It buys me half the distance I need or maybe even a bit more, but not quite enough.

But on a related note, I don't LOVE the tiny windows on that roof. How often do 2 door 110 hard tops crop up for sale?

The top panel is separate from the sides, which you already have...

Central tire inflation system?

Airbag suspension?

haha, trust me, all solutions that have been discussed but are not in the cards at the moment when I could easily just swap spots to an outdoor spot. Less than ideal for my delicate sensibility.

Honestly, the number 1 reason i wanna keep the indoor spot is it's HUGE and I can do lots of work on the car in there.

I mean honestly, who builds a garage with a 6'6" max height??!!
