How about hooking to the roll bar behind it instead? This will work better for more people, especially those of us with hard tops. It'll work great in both winter (for heat) and summer with the top off for the occasional downpour.

I will take one of the initial 10.
Someone made these years ago, and they are great for keeping HVAC to the front area, or to run with a Surrey/Bikini and still be weather tight-ish...

We continued work on the template today. There can (probably will) be a pocket below the window on the interior side to store misc things, a nice large window (outline shown from inside), and straps to go around the roll cage (sides and lower). It should come out nice. We're adding material to the sides of this one, so any gaps you see will be filled in for the real run.

Also, most of the wrinkles you see will go away once there are straps to tighten the top on. Oh and Tom stinks at cutting, so once the professionals are doing it for the real run, it'll look much nicer.

Josh, how do you see it working on the exMOD trucks with the bulkhead? Would it hang on the cargo side of the bulkhead or stuff behind the seats? If the tail, so to speak, is long enough the seats would hold the bottom against the bulkhead no problem.

Looking good, nice work!

The first 10 should get made this week (I need to check window material stock). Pricing will be set once done (I need to decide if I am going with two ply's of material or not).

It seemed a little over kill. Single ply will be cheaper for everybody, but I want something heavy enough to not flap in the wind. More to follow.

Worked.....a little.

I just got the material shipped in for the initial run. I will say I have enough material for 8, this could go up to 10. They should be ready next Wednesday for shipment. I am going to say that $175 shipped is fair after sourcing all the materials. These are 100% US made products (down to the thread).

They are going to be one ply of heavy truck tarp material (the same stuff you see on the sides of soft sided semi trucks). It will have a clear window welded in place. The edges will be hemmed with nylon. Pics to follow. The first people showing interest on these are as follows:

NAS:

1. RoverTrader
2. Shep29
3. CJBenway (if he gets rid of his shower curtain)


MOD:
1. Josh-Man
2. Guam Pilot

Sounds good. Please make sure you leave enough Velcro on the strap length for us MOD'ers.

Look forward to seeing the first one! Please keep me on the list.

Oh and what about the tactical pocket under the window?

Can you make one with a zip down window? Would be a great option if so. Attached at the bottom but can unzip and fold down?
Color options? What color is that, black?
