I know of two companies that specialize in hardtophoists and winches. Their online addresses are
eztop and removable top. The first one will have an 02Tbird version available in about a month. The other hasn't announced a custom version yet. The electric winch is a very expensive option but may be necessary for one person operation [hard to guide the top and manually crank at the same time].
I ordered a lift from TOP/CAP EZ Lift by James Motor Sport in Valencia, CA. You can call 800-760-2853. Manual with shipping was $186.00. I mounted before Christmas and tonight I lifted the top and made adjustments. At 1st the front was lifting late, so I had to shorten the front rope. I took a few pictures and will post on the data page after I get developed. I think it will work fine. The only problem installing the lift was that the rafters in the garage did not match the holes(it has three holes and two of them matched, but I had to drill one new one).
