Gotta agree, that's pretty cool looking!

Re: Making a open sides hard top two options. Looking for suggestions

Looks cool. . It would have to be double wall. It has more center support. This would never work with a single wall. You would have to add center support Beams. Iíve seen video of guys on the trail 4 vying that broke the top while twisted up in the rocks. Now that itís missing the center support I would not take this off-road.

Ok it never sagged in the middle but it did develop some cracks around the mounting holes sadly. PG

the red one in the first post started life as a double wall... I had a conversation with that guy about it... he said it had a ton of fiberglass work in it to make it like that...

Re: Making a open sides hard top two options. Looking for suggestions

Anybody fab one out of metal? Build a frame out of square tubing. Use a truck roof skin then work your way back? I think I might give it a shot! Any input/ideas would be appreciated!
