Triumph TR6 - Convertible hood folding

HI there
Any recommendations on how you fold the convertible hood away when you have the antiroll bar in the car?
Without creasing it and squashing it down I can't seem to fold it away properly. Does the roll bar make it hard to do?
Cheers
James

I have found that when you fold the top back you must pull the window back from the top mechanism, fold it back over the rest of the top, fold in the side windows, and you should then be able put the cover over it.
Possibly your roll bar has supports angled to the rear which make this difficult.

I have got the roll bar with supports angled back and seem to do OK. Even with some big 6x9 speaker boxes on the shelf.

I follow Simon's method pretty closely, but don't forget to unzip the rear window if you can. And if you have a nice top, some towels may help protect the plastic windows.
