Ever since I purchased my Hardtop in Oct. I always wondered where the hell I was going to put the damn thing once the weather got good........a few months later I found this post by
"BAD S2K" and the directions to his Custom Hardtop Stand!

www.s2ki.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=53467

So I printed the pics and the directions and put it the drawer, finally this weekend before I went up with Guys (NYC Metro Club) to Weschester for a Drive, I took my Hardtop off - Where the hell am I gonna put this thing - So I had to build it, found the pages with the specs and here's the product

Honda Hardtop Stand: $795 plus shipping
Custom PVC Hardtop Stand: $50 of materials, 1hr. of labor
PRICELESSSSSSSSSSSSS............lol, can't beat that!!!

*added a few custom things (black paint, S2000 logo)

- Don't ask!! I aint selling it and I am not making another one! -

Special Props to: Bad S2k, thanks for the blueprints

Very nice!!! I am very impressed. I may build one as well. I'd like to make a pulley system and hang the whole thing in the air to save space, not to mention that I may be able to remove the top without help.

question, with the thread that has the measurements, is the lenths such as 26.5" the PIPE length or the distant between the posts?

Something I need to put together is why I ask

nice job. I remember when BadS2k first came up with this idea. I was going to build this about a year ago, but I'm too damn lazy...haha

I still use the original box the hardtop came in to store it in my garage :)

I finished mine last night. it saved me some cabbage - $45 in supplies vs high $300s for a Honda holder. Kept thinking Blue man group.... anyway it works very well, thinking of having a pint of silverstone made up at the auto paint store to match the top.

Nice job, SenseiRick. Do you have any trouble using the OEM cloth hardtop cover with the stand? I think I recall in the earlier thread from Bads2k that someone who tried this design was not able to use the OEM cover. Looks like you are not having any problem.

no problem with the cover........I put the top in the stand then slip on the cover from the top - drops straight down.....easy!

BadS2k made a good call using the plugs too. These screw ons allow you to balance out the stand on a sloped garage very well.

wow that is awesome, great setup man. I will do that if I get a hard top. Much better than paying hundreds for the oem stand.
