Manually Locking the roof stowage cover 328i vert

I have a 1996 BMW328i vert and I want to be able to operate the roof 100% manually (permanently). I can disconnect the 2 roof motors in the boot, I can take out the 4 fuses (including fuse 49 in the boot) - this shoulod stop the roof microswitches working and the boot locking. BUT - once the roof is down how do I manually lock down the roof stowage cover? - Is there any way - or is there a conversion kit to do this?

Unhappy

On your model, you cannot lock it in the down position, unless power is restored.

The emergency lever under the left rear cushion provides you a means to disconnect the gear drives so you can raise the top; but, it cannot be lowered again unless the system is re-energized.
