Never heard of a hardtop that would go on a car that was a hardtop. I don't see the advantage of a fixed hardtop on a G6 because if the convertible hardtop is fitted properly it is as quiet, leak-proof and insulated as a fixed hardtop.

Also, you'd have to keep the convertible hardtop stored in the down position and you'd lose the use of your trunk.
I don't understand why you'd even want it.

It's an extra top...he needed to buy it for some parts that were on it
I'm wondering if it could fold or is that done electrically...previous owner didn't know..thanks

The top is mostly mechanical driven by hydraulics. If you could move the release mechanism manually it ought to be possible to fold it with a couple of people. One of the hydraulic cylinders is in the roof liner. If I recall correctly that is the one that will release the hinge clamps. Once those are released the larger hydraulic rams near the bat wings would push forward and fold the lid. That part should be possible by hand if you can provide the right support and lift. Never done it so only a guess on my part.

Just took out Jesus clips holding hydraulics in and it folded...easier than storing it open...might keep glass and possibly "sell" roof top...don't know if theres a market for one

Will look like this, I actually just need the rubber grommets off the stems shown in this pic, mine are cracked and have one missing.
