A member of the French forum MTW made me this semi rigid roof for my three wheeler :

I receive it next week, and I begin the adaptation on my car....

I had already made a manufacturing attempt last year trying to bend the aluminum with all the cylindrical objects found in my garage :

Don’t forget to video the entry and exit into the cockpit with the top in place.

Nestor has what I would call a “rigid tonneau”. A “hard top” would be more the coupe add on like on the new Plus6. Not sure what a half hard top would be, nor the correct French (Demi-tonneau ferme?).

Presumably the only issue with ingress/egress is one’s shoulder?

Here is a first version on the MTW of the person who made me the piece.
He uses the fixings of the original flexible canvas.
The upper part is open V-shaped for easy access to the vehicle
