Hi Kai
On the original GTS the roof was stored behind the seats during open air driving.

If you have a look here http://dinorestoration.com/carpeting-complete/ you will see that the transmission tunnel on the original is a lot smaller than on the Deon or Classic replicas car. The larger replica transmission prevents storage of a one piece roof in the correct place in those replicas.

A friend of mine has a classic replicas Dino which had a single piece roof which he converted to a 2 piece so that he could store the individual pieces behind each seat.

P.S. I've just found a picture showing that the original also has a cut out in the roof which allows the roof to straddle the transmission tunnel when the roof is stored behind the seats. https://www.fantasyjunction.com/sold...otos#photos-18
