Default Pulling the 40's hardtop... When?

I'm itching to pull the hardtop on the 40... The weather's pretty nice this week and last week too. I just know we'll see the snowiest April on record if I pull it now.

I used to wait for a 3 day 70* forecast before pulling it but we've already had that!

So 40 owners, when are you gonna welcome spring and summer?

I swap out to the bikini top and half doors on the first nice weekend at the end of March, first of April. Then have a cover handy for the resulting snow storms. We're still due a decent snow before too long....

Please keep it on, the snow has sucked so much even a big storm cant help at this point. I want to start biking earlier this season.

Can't wait for a garage so I can pull the top again! UB said it's going to be a snowy April though!
