Vinyl Bikini and Surrey tops from Badger Coachworks

We all don't have the amount of money we wish we had to spend on our toys. So, we have researched the possibilities of producing a vinyl line of bikini and surrey tops. This vinyl does not have the issues that the Bestop vinyl used by Bestop had. It's the same outer vinyl with a polyester backing in grey. This is our economy line and has the same craftsmanship as our premium products.

Strapless bikini (black vinyl/grey backing) $300
Surrey tops (black vinyl/grey backing) $450

We can fill orders for these in 7 to 10 days, and if they are popular we will then stock these items for immediate shipment.

Hey chris,
Any chance you can supply LR ripple grey headlining material (enough to do a truck cab headliner)?

Are you referring to the original material on the form headliner boards like the 110's have? We don't have a source for that material. We have used the foam backed GM type headliner material like the Range Rover classics had. The 1/4" and 1/8" is available in a variety of colors. A few of the colors are available in 64" wide goods, while the majority of the colors are only 54" wide.

How about bikinis and surreys to fit the gutter kit?

Kevin,

We make bikini tops for the factory hood sticks, so I don't see any reason why we couldn't do the same in vinyl.

Adi,

Yes, we can make them for the gutter kit. You underestimate the powers of the Badger

Chris,


Do you still make full lenght tonneau covers for the defender 90? The one that covers the entire cab from dash back?

Also if you do can you modify them to work with the gutter kit installed?

Thanks,
Tracy

Chris,
I have a full length tonneau for a 1994 D-90 which you are welcome to use as a pattern and return when finished for Tracy's request.

Yes, we still offer the full tonneau cover. I had a customer call about the same alteration. He was having a problem fitting the full tonneau with the gutter kit on. He will be driving up from NY later this summer for alterations on the cover. That alteration won't be available till then, but it is possible.

Chris,

Have a full tonneau for mine already, but I have the gutter kit to install and it will not work with it. It is the factory tonneau. Is there a possibility I could ship it to you and you could alter it to work with my gutter kit?

Tracy,

I would need a 1994 here at the shop to do the alteration properly. You might be better of having a local shop make the alteration with your vehicle. The factory tonneau covers are different then ours.

Chris, would you consider making a full tonneau for the 97 ST? I know you make some a while back, but would you make one out of the vinyl material? Any idea on cost?

The price for the surrey at $450 is that for one to fit a gutter kit also?

I've reviewed the pricing on our vinyl bikini and surrey tops and found that they could be priced lower than my original posting.

Surrey top in vinyl $395.00 (revised price)
Bikini top in vinyl $250.00 (revised price)

Have a nice holiday weekend!

Is it possible to have a Series vinyl bikini in Black or dark gray at that price within the week? (for desert use at the Rally in Moab)

Kevin,

Unfortunately, I don't think the design of our bikini top for the Series vehicles will work with vinyl.

Chris,


Letting you know I got the modified cover and it works perfectly.

I was also wondering if you got my email about ordering the door tops and the kahki colored sury top?

Thanks for fixing it for me.

Tracy
