Automatic to Manual Conversion?

Has anyone here converted their convertible top operation from automatic (electrical) to manual operation? I think years ago I remember seeing some posts concerning what was needed. (Searched but no luck.) Even thought there was a mention of some sort of "kit".

Any help would be appreciated . . . . . . am tired of constantly adjusting and messing with the "Rube Goldberg" mechanism.
