Hard top feeler

And so it begins. Anyone have a fiberglass hard top they are looking to part with?

You're being in North Carolina, and him being in Maine might make for a difference of opinion there though...

What ever happened to the company that was suppose to have been building copies of the Original Hard Tops?

The hard top is a bit of a pain to put on and it's not that durable when in pieces. I think it only makes you want to ride with the top down more. Used mine for a year, took it off and probably won't be putting it on again. If it were only easier to put on and take off...

Brian i understand that since ive got 2 different hard tops for my Series II in LA which i have off most of the time in favor of my bikini top but it doesnt snow in LA. I wonder how many guys that live up in the northern states keep their soft tops on in favor of hard tops during the winter.

John sold mine over the summer thinking I was moving back to CA. I have a full set of glass if you get one with a window out.
I liked the hardtop in the winter never liked it in CA.

John, totally understand the concern for the snow...good luck finding one...or maybe you should move that truck out to CA! Would love to see your other trucks when you're out here.

The company that was going to replicate them was Rover Racks in FL. There have been so many people claiming they want to replicate the top over the years...never gets done.

I purchased a 1994 D 90 last spring and use it primarly in the summer. I took the hard top off and would definately be interesting in selling it. It is in descent shape. stress cracks in the usual areas. The hard top is in my garage in Rhode Island. I Live in CT. If you are interested i can try and get some photos? let me know.
Jon

Jon that would be great. My Dad lives in RI so it would be real easy for me to run down and pick it up. Can you send me a PM and let me know what you would like for it.

hard top

Hey John,

You will love the badger top and if you add a drop curtian you will not even need a hard top. I lived on Cape Cod of 15 years and I'm good friends with Chris. He does top notch work and if you have the gutter kit with the top you are all set. I had a 94 NAS 90 and it was a dream in the winter with that set up. If you decide you really need a fiberglass hard top and the one in RI does not work out let me know as I have one available. FYI you may also want to remove the dash and wider the heater vent hole. It easy to do and will make a big difference with the heat. All the best.

Cheers
Scott

Scott thanks for the heads up that is good to know. I have my eye on the badger half cab and tonneau cover. I do like this badger top it has on it. Is it me or is it real hard to get the front of the cover into the gutter rail with the lights on the roll cage?

I have a badger and am very happy with it. Curious though. I think it is rover racks that were going to make new fiberglass and supposedly carbon hard tops. Love to see them.
