Do the tops have to be removed to install the shade? Just how much of the tabs need to be removed for it to fit?

Top does not have to be removed - I didn't - but may be easier install if you do. I trimmed tabs ballpark 3/16, or slightly less than quarter inch. Still not a great fit. I may or may not mess with it some more. At least for now I'm leaving it in place and I like the effect.

I'll just leave my hard top on and forego all those hassles...

Iíve gotten one, it helps to block out the sun and make the seats less scorching hot. The tabs are too long and I havenít made an effort to trim them yet. Got the shade on after a lot of effort. It is not quite right yet because I havenít trimmed the tabs. I canít tell that the top-facing side is white when looking at the car from the outside. I would simply forego the glass top in the future..

I wonder if there is a way to put a couple small suction cups in middle to keep it from sagging. I would like the option to take it off every now and then and have a clean top.
