Hi folks

I have a KR200 Kabrio and I don't see pictures of the proper way to lower the top where it looks good without buying a cover for it.  There are two removable support struts towards the front, and I don't know if they stay in or what. 

I just got it and want to take it out today for a drive, so any input would be great! 

Also, if you have information on the storage covers for the top perhaps I'll buy one and just leave the top down. 

Thanks!

This is what the KR200 cabrio looks like with the top folded back and a cover on it.
The person that restored this car sometimes stops in here, he may have more info about that cover. I think he had it made.
As for proper folding, I'll look for more pics of other cars and see what I can dig up.

here is someone else rolling it and then using a strap to tie it off. This pic is from Germany.
