Fiberglass hardtop

hello. im clearing some things out of the shop b4 the winter snows.
anyone interested in a fiberglass hardtop? its in decent shape, probably 7/10.
all the glass is nice, and only a few slight scratches from putting it on and off. i have not installed it on my truck for the last 5 years, so maybe someone else could use it.
item is located in cleveland, oh.
asking $800, but will entertain reasonable offers.
thanks

Hours. It consist of 3 side/rear panels and a single roof panel. All held together by many many small bolts. Nothing like a Jeep hardtop. Not to mention trading out door seals and removing the header bar. Done it twice

I would say, from my experience, once you have done it a few times: about 1,5 - 2 hours to install it properly and less than 1 hour to remove. But you beed two people to install/remove the top section.

once you'v done it a few times, it goes pretty quick... like 3-4 beers quick and when taking it off in the spring it becomes one of the happiest days of the year, kinda like seeing the first tulips blooming.

it is certainly a PITA, but if you drive your truck year around in cold, windy, awful places like cleveland, its well worth the trouble... it really does help keep you comfy.

that said, i dont drive my truck in the winter anymore, the road salt does vicious things to one's beloved truck and its easier to just store it.... thus the top is surplus to my needs.
