If you have the money. Hyd. pump, cyl., wires, switches, and relays. A good custom shop should be able to do this faily easily. I believe the company that 'did these tops" is still out there. May want to talk to them.

As the long term owner of a 1988 iroc convertible I believe these cars only ever came with a manual top by ASC. It takes like 20 seconds to flip the roof closed. Why would you spend money on a power configiration? Less moving parts the better !

trust me when i say that when it starts to rain its much nicer to just touch a button at a red light rather then get out of the car and lift the top. i know this cause my button broke and i delt with for a month until i sprung for a new one. i also like to use a key on a car rather push it to pop start it or use a handcrank like the olden days

Re: convertible z28

anyways, where theres a will theres a way. I would go to your local junkyard and just pull out the assembly out of any convertible and make it work

I think I have only been caught in the rain 4 times in 18 years. Only drive mine if its a perfect sunny day. I see what you are saying but it sounds like alot of work and butchering.
