I bought my hardtop hoist (a 440 lber) from Harbor Freight for $59 flat (free shipping on orders over $50)
Can't beat it for running the 140 lb hardtop up and down.
For storage; I screwed 4 eye-bolts into the floor-beams above the garage; and ran 4 ratchet-straps down from them to hold the top. The hoist doesn't hold anything in the offseason...all it does it run the top up and down; once a year.
