Tithonus bikini top

Has anyone tried any of the bikini tops available on the market on a Tithonus. I'm likely not going to have a top on my Tithonus until next winter but sometimes when it's wicked hot out in the dead of summer and the sun is beating down, I'm sure I'm going to be looking for some cover up from it. I suppose I could always get up with my local fabric shops to make me something but curious if existing tops will fit.

Also, while on topic of tops for Tithonus, I've got nice PVC tops but am looking for a canvas sand colored top with windows. Pretty sure it doesn't exist and I'm going to have to have it made but figured I'd check and see if anyone has seen them somewhere for sale.

Thanks in advance

This is too funny. What a coincidence...

Since I don't have a garage to work on my truck... I'm doing other things...

I just borrowed a half bikini top from Kent... Via Jason today.

I'm planning on test fit the half bikini top this weekend.

I'll keep you posted.

Would love to see what you come up with Chris. I just went the cheap/easy route and cut the sides out of my Tith top. It gives the same kind of effect of a bikini top especially with the door tops off.

I just removed the shitty plastic top the PO installed and am in the process of removing the rivets.

Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have the pictures of the final product.

Ooh I like that. It looks like you have an option for windows. Did you set it up to be able to put windows in the openings? What did you use?
