I want to give a big thanks to Dumé who gave me the idea and all the relevant info to make the conversion from the dreaded electric roof to a manual operation.
I showered him with questions and he was always quick to reply to get me rolling.

Thank-you Dumé !

As someone who overthinks things habitually (so the roof always struck me as a bad idea for lots of reasons) I get a little bit of a guilty pleasure to see this post popping up occasionally. Yes, I’m a riot at parties (not).

So, a detailed and clear tutorial in English is available. Special thanks to Marchugo, member of the Caliboard forum for the translation Dutch to English.
Let me know your email by private message and you will receive the pdf files soon.
Grtz, Dumè

Hi.
Reading this with great interest, as my Cali has a failed hydraulic pump which is going to cost £thousands to put right.
Never liked it, always felt it could go wrong and now it has!
Is the pdf file for the conversion to Beach gas struts still available please?
If so, I am thinking the work is beyond my capability, but maybe I can find someone in the trade who can carry it out.
Many thanks, Tim.
