Just a heads up as I'm trying to post every where. Thanks

STOLEN Hardtop STOLEN If you see a Black MR2 spyder hardtop it's stolen. Will have a Noticeable big paint imperfection on driver side and assuming will be sold with no mounting kit or latches on the hardtop in the inside... Please call the police and/or Notify me. Thanks

I feel like I just saw one of these black tops for sale in one of the other MR two Facebook groups. Not sure if it was MR two spider parts group or MR two owners club parts swap but I saw one that was identified as a viz. racing top in black that didn’t have the back glass

I've been spamming the hell out of all social media and classifieds since I discovered it stolen so maybe? Unfortunately had to go to work and they blocked access to facebook so don't know the status of stuff there...

Broke the window then unscrewed all the hard mount screws. They were allen head bolts.
Damn man. I’m sorry. Someone knew what they were doing to take the time to do that and knew exactly the value of the part.

hope you at least had insurance to cover :(

Same for my friend but it was right in front of his house. These guys are quick. Low lifes man 😔
They definitely are pros and are prepared. Although, could see them doing it in broad day light without any problems...

It's things like this that make me reconsider if we should allow anti-theft systems that would truly deter crime.

Man, I sure am sorry that happened to you.

Did you say you had rigid mounts for it?

I got Snelbaard’s rigid mounts a few weeks ago, but have only had time to install the fronts. I would’ve figured they’d make the top a lot more difficult to steal. . . Guess not.

Yeah had snelbaard's mounts. If it weren't experienced pros in targeting all convertible cars with hardtops then I'd assume yes? it might deter them alone since they're allen head bolts, but these guys were pros and came prepared. Knew exactly what they were doing. Hardtop thefts are common here unfortunately.

Son of a. Well, I completely stripped out, like, three of those bolts when installing mine, so hopefully that’ll add an additional layer of security if those D-bags ever make it out to Colorado. . .
