header panel for soft tops

So i know Rob makes the fiberglass header panel for soft tops etc... And that is my current plan to purchase one... but curious if anyone else has come up with something similar to accomplish the same a little more economically?
Thanks

Re: header panel for soft tops

I actually made one out of steel. It bolts to the original mounts. If you have a welder you can whip one up for cheap. I think I have $30-$40 into it. I think I can improve on it but for now it does the job.

You have any pics? I do have a welder and thought of doing the same but wasnt sure what what kind of pressure that piece might have one it from wind force etc...
