Looking for a video to remove the top complete.

I just bought a complete top for the 986.
It had a glass window and the fabric was in fantastic shape.
I need a video on how to remove the entire top.
There are plenty of videos on how to remove the fabric, but I cannot find one on how to remove the top with the frame still attached.

I was thinking I could watch the first steps in replacing it with a hard top, but came up empty handed.

Please help.

If you just want to take off the entire top and frame (without removing the fabric), you can use the instructions below:

I did this mod a few years ago and it is the best of the many mods I have done over the years.
I followed very helpful and detailed instructions by schoir and boxtaboy. Here is a link that includes pdf instructions. It is an easy swap, basically 4 bolts once you disconnect the actuator arms, etc.
Good luck!!
