It's never happened to me but if I got caught by a surprise shower I'd probably wait it out in a car wash bay, parking garage or under cover anywhere.

Never happened to me either, just looking for options that people do just in case. Thanks.

This is why I RARELY bother with the tonneau cover. New England is not like Florida with spontaneous rain, so that helps.

^^^ This is actually somewhat true. Last summer, driving a 70 Mercedes, got caught (car at the time did not have a top, being redone), so we rolled up the windows, and kept going. The looks people gave us, was worth it. Stop lights sucked.

I have actually seen the top in the car, top up and driving but I would not call it safe and certainly not comfortable!! It was a new edge
