I'd like to say the hard top is warmer, but between the poor fitting top-to-windshield frame gasket and poor old decrepit door gaskets the rig is drafty as an open air horse buggy.
The hardtop looks great Ricardo , much better than the camo did, in my opinion anyway.

I'd guess that the hardtop is not any more drafty than a soft top and if you get a few more years out of the softy, you're good. ;

As an alternative, you could run a bikini top in the summer and the softy in the winter if ya don't want to hassel with taking the hardtop on/off and if its just as drafty as the softy Anyway its all good!

Great pics! You were close home for me but couldna gone anyway as I was helping Zach with the rust removal on his pig. He's stoked about bringing it to the RS meeting. Wednesday.
