I do not suppose anyone has ever installed or removed an OEM Grady hard top?

Not many parts to it, pretty straight forward, but I always want to learn from tips others have that have done it, just in case. Cannot ever know too much or research it too much heh.

Thanks!

I boat a 85 Offshore that was beyond repair with a hard top, and removed it and installed it on my 87 offshore. Pretty simple and straight forward. I took good measurements disconeccted all wiring from fuse block then I cut off all hardware with a grinder and cut off wheel, had a buddy help lift it off, and hold it. Then just drilled holes in new host, and installed with all new hardware. See before b after pics.
