I tried to lower the top on the projectoon yesterday by removing the back bolts on the bottom and front bolts on the top but it doesn't come down level. The front comes all the way down almost to the floor while the back is still up almost 5 feet. Am I doing something wrong here or are the supports on wrong? Maybe this top wasn't designed to be lowered? Any ideas?   thanks, Fred

On the bottom remove all the back bolts and on the top remove all the front bolts. If that works use wing nuts on the bolts and you will always know which one to remove.

that's exactly what I said.....back on bottom, front on top.......doesn't work. I don't think it's designed to stow in down position.

Yeah, the geometry is wrong for it going down parallel to the deck.

I think maybe your rear brackets need to be swapped port to starboard

Just joined and saw this thread, the rear supports need to be rotated or spun around so they lean toward the front then remove the front bolt on the top supports and the rear bolt on the bottom of the supports, it will then fold nicely
