you are correct and I think it is great we all have options, one thing I will disagree with is the idea that you catch more wind on two wheels - I dont know about you, but on two wheels I always felt the need to wear protective clothing that is totally unnecessary on my slingshot - when I pull up to a light next to a person on two wheels and I see them baking in the sun sitting there in their heavy riding gear I thank God I am sitting in my slingshot in my shorts able to actually feel whatever slight breeze there is against my skin - I have even had some of those people sitting next to me tell me they were jealous and wish they could ride wearing light clothes like I was wearing because the heat in their riding gear was killing themI think it is important to note it doesn't have to be an either/or situation.
Depending on the weather/forecast my Stinger roof is either being used for shade/rain, carried on the back in case of extreme weather or sitting in the shed.
I initially bought my roof for shade. Didn't really like the idea of a roof but didn't like the sun beating down on me in an enclosed vehicle ( I know some of you don't think it's enclosed, but to me sitting in the hot sun it sure felt enclosed to me), and no air conditioning. Unlike a motorcycle where you catch the wind, there's no catching even a breeze in the SS, just roasting.
There was only one roof that I thought looked good on the SS and allowed me to remove and install it easily and also carry it with me. Thereby also giving my SS three different looks, the Roadster, the Coupe and when I am carrying it with me, the Beetle look. i.e. the top looks like beetle wings when carrying it on the back. Never thought that I would consider a roof as one of my top three mods, but I do.
As a fun side note when I asked my wife if she wanted a top and I showed them to her online she laughed and said, "why would I want that? if its 120 out it will still be 120 under that top and unless the sun is directly over head its going to be hitting me anyway. dont waste your money. why dont you get those JRI coil overs you want instead"
needless to say - I got the coil overs
