Did the same thing, except i used 1" square tubing for my frame. Just back it in, remove the wings nuts and hoist it up!!!!

I'd rather be fishin' with Jimmy Buffet!!

Thats a nice setup. Anything to help you remove that top by yourself is fantastic.

Just because you are paranoid doesnt mean people arent following you!

Thanks for the pics. I've been thinking about doing the same thing.
I'll use yours as a good starting point.

My garage ceiling is too low so I built a gantry with a harbor freight $12 winch. I added some 10" swivel casters after taking the photos

I built mine off of a tree that I can drive under

I set up a 2x4 arm to the side of a pine tree with 4 pulleys.

...still trying to find the best balance point, but at least I've turned it into a one man job.
