Default My super cheap quick release hardtop brackets

Now that my car is a full track car, I really miss the days of old when I could’ve put the top down at ease. I still like to do some sessions with the hardtop off and to drive around town on a nice morning, but it’s kind of a pain to remove the solid brackets that I have. While it’s only a few bolts it is hard to get it to line back up just right when putting the hardtop back on. I know the OEM latches are an option, plus a few others like Forbidden/etc., but I don’t really like spending a lot of money on things I don’t “need”. I really wanted a budget solution. While messing around in the garage and with some McMaster research this is what I came up with.

I made a quick DIY for anyone interested: https://baero.tech/cheap-quick-release-hardtop-brackets

Took only about an hour of work. I plan on using OEM front latches to complete the set.

I've long forgotten what it's like to rip around a track topless.
