I ran this by Brentil and it was deemed "safe to post" :willy: so here it is...

Here is the link where you can download the videos. They are too big to be uploaded to this post... :banghead:

I tried to play the video, but it would not work. :confused: I have seen the Sol's top in action, so I guess it is similar to that. :cheers:

Try opening up the URL with Win. Media player directly. That's how it worked for me the first time I saw it... :cheers:

Got it :cheers: Looks just like the Sols top, but I believe that I will use the key fob to pop the trunk ... rather than bending over to the glove box. I guess they just wanted to show the extra feature.

Only thing I would add based upon sol owners with multiple ups and downs of tops that most latch the front of top to header before latching the AFBTS. Consider the operation when you access the trunk only, the AFBTS come up with the opening of the trunk, you close the trunk and then latch the AFBTS. If you stuck to the SKy official procedure it would imply that you should loosen the top when accessing the trunk as they want the AFBTS secured prior to the front header. Also pressing down in center of front of trunk makes the trunk latch easier than pressing on either side where the 3M tape is under the AFBTS. And closing the trunk with the top already latched at front (as in only accessing the trunk) is easier than catching the fabric if the top is not all the way up.

I betcha if in a sudden rain storm that it would be second nature to pop the top out of the trunk faster than the 30 second video. Now where is the spare tire?

You get a can of CRAP to spray into your tire. I guess we have to keep remembering that this is a roadster not a minivan.

The videos are great. If you are having problems with it playing right click the link and then save target as. Just another way that might help solve some problems out there. :cheers:

On solsticeforum.com there has been discussion about damage to the trunk latch when closing the trunk after raising or lowering the top. I believe it has something to do with the position of the latch moving to 'closed' before the trunk is shut. Also, there has been quite a bit of discussion about leaks requiring replacement of seals and delaying delivery. At least GM is taking care of the problems and sorting things out.

What does CRAP stand for? Is it for the substance that Can Replace Air Pressure?

I was reading about that, but it's the roof latch that's getting damaged. If the latch is in the closed position when stowed, it sticks out far enough that the trunk will come down and bend it. Several of the leaks appeared to be related to bending of the latch, either by the owner or by the dealer before delivery.
