I have my entire top off and hoisted to the ceiling including the front panels. Not ignoring the request to try it, just haven’t moved things around to drop it and test…I meant the roof panels. It would be nice to be able to take them off at will and store them in the drawer under the top without interfering with all the rest of the junk that we carry around on the daily.
Edit to clarify: by "top" I mean the drawer top, which all of your daily junk would be sitting on. So the two front row panels from your hard top could go in the drawer instead of (as you put it) clanging around in the back haphazardly perched on all of your junk. Which is the way I do it now, and it sucks.
