I asked a buddy of mine...he said:
Quote:
It will only stay for like 15 seconds, then, unless you prop it somehow, it either slams on your windshield or drops slowly into the trunk. I've tried. I know you see them displayed that way at the dealerships, but they prop it up so it doesn't drop.
Cut a mop handle and paint it black to prop it....?

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

correct to service the tops they make straps that will not let the top fall in mid position, if you want to display this you need to make a strap or get some from a dealer...
