Cool Tonneau cover and hardtop same time!

Searched forums to see if anyone has done this but couldn't find anything just people discussing it or shooting the idea down. I gutted the whole soft top assembly a loooooong time ago when the plastic window went to poop. Pushed me to invest in the hardtop while shaving off a decent amount of fat. I've also heard the tonneau cover was a PITA to put in but takes less than 5 minutes if your in my situation ha. Reason why I wanted this was to hopefully reduce some noise that comes from the trunk "also gutted" and didn't like the big gap for people to see including what I have in my trunk at that time. All that was required was just some tucking so I could tighten down the brackets that connect to the hardtop. Other than that it's straight forward. Anyone that's wanting or thinking of doing this ask away. Stay Classy!

More pics too please.
I have not installed a hard top but I am curious as to why you would remove the plastic "tray" that separates the trunk from the cabin. I put some B Quiet underneath my tray and stuffed the space between the tray and the spare/tank with 3M Thinsulate. It made a real difference in squelching extraneous sound. I also just "placed" a piece of Thinsulate to fit the tray as a sound absorber in the cabin. It just rest on top. My wife like to put her hat or light items back there too.

BTW, when removing the tonneau cover, I use one of those plastic trim removal tools to pop out the snaps. Easier to get in there with one of those.

If I removed my top I would want the CR tonneau super bad. Your version is a nice (and much cheaper alternative). Good work!

I guess it depends what brackets or hardtop you use. I got a mugen replica no fabricating just some tucking in. I liked the plastic tray in the back behind the seats, I use to put my dog there when I go out for joy rides "kidding" :P. When I yanked out the whole assembly I was in demolition mode and wasn't thinking about that part haha. With the setup I have now there would be no way for me to get back there with hardtop on.
