Changing convertible top

To remove the entire top and frame....does it just com off with a few bolts?
Can a top from a car with power roof be used on a manual (car)....manually?

First question is yes...3 bolts on each side plus a micro switch disconnect on the drivers side.

Yes - tops for auto and manual cars are the same. An auto top frame can also be used on a manual car with some very easy modifications.

There is a series of 3 videos on YouTube that might also be helpful. Here is a link to the first one.
