Spider 2005 jts

Roof swap ( manual to electrical )

I have two spiders a 1995 fase 1 with a so good as new roof and an 2005 fase 3 JTS with a good butt not perfect roof. I want to switch the roofs because i intend to keep only the fase 3 and sell the 1995.
Now the fase 1 is a manual roof and the fase 3 is an electrical. Of coarse i only want to switch the roof and not the electrical and hydraulic components.
Is this possible as a plug and play ( humm ) or do i beside the locking pins have to switch other items?

Thanks in advance

You have to switch the locking pins and remove the gas struts from the manual roof.

Certain items from the electrical roof for the mechanisms will need to be placed on to the manual frame.

Dont worry about putting the gas struts on to the electrical roof, they are not needed.
