I removed the hard top on my 69’ for the first time this weekend. It went much easier then expected and clearly the top had been removed many times before. One of the reasons I believe it was easier is the fact that the posts on the driver and passenger side are removed. These are posts that are attached to the top frame and slide into the body door frame. Should I leave this as is when I put the top back on? I have heard of cutting off one of side or reducing the size of these posts, but not totally removing. Any advice? I cannot say that there have been any issues with these posts removed, but it’s also not a huge job to find steel rod to use when I reinstall if needed. Anyone else cut or remove these posts for easy hard top removal?
