Fiberglass hardtop tool

Anyone know where I can pick up the "special tool" for removing and installing the fiberglass hardtop?

If you're referring to the tool included with the top, I didn't use one. I thought it was simply for fastening the bolts - you can use a socket wrench.

It consists of nothing more than a 10mm socket at the end of a spring attached to a screwdriver handle. I assume the spring (aside from being flexible) provides the desired "give" which prevents over-tightening. A fun addition to the toolbox, but otherwise superflouous.

Thanks guys. I printed off the instructions from this site and it refers to this special tool. Didn't know if it was a must have or not.
