Default XK8 Roof Operational Test Box

As most of you know I have provided a lot of information on the XK8 and itís roof operation. Over the past several weeks I have been working on a test box that would take the guess work out of trouble shooting the roof operating system and this is what I came up with.

I'm about to replace the latch hoses. If the top doesn't work because of efforts by PO I may need this. Great work, Gus.

Thanks for inspiring this idea Gus.

It has been a lot of fun working with you on this project!

I think it will help out owners who have tough to resolve convertible top problems.
