More Pics

Still Have Some Work To Do. It Was Nice Today So I Thought I Would Pull Her Out And Take A Couple Pictures.

Follow-up Post:

The Pillar Bar Was Fabbed Using A Cj Cage That I Extended About 8" Longer. The Surrey Top Is On There So I Can See Where I Need To Cut And Stitch To Make It Fit. I Will Have To Make The A Longer Snap Rail So I Can Fasten It. I Did Some Patch Work On The Frame Where There Was Weak Spots, Almost Done With That. I Need To Install The 2 Front Flares. Secure The Tuffy Boxes. I Cut Out A Hole In The Bottom Of The Left Side For Deep Storage. The Little Jump Seats Need To Installed With Belts........the List Goes On But It Ought To Fun This Summer.

Still Looking For A Few More Lug Nuts?!!

I'm digging your beach runner! Saw this on ebay, not sure if it would fit though.

I don't think so. That's more suited to what I'm trying to do, although I'd still need the hoops and they do not appear to be cheap either.

I think the beach runner is the superior concept, but this arrangement from a supplier in the UK seems to be a "one stop" solution to make an acceptable 110 SW soft top without going the full-NAS route. It might be the best answer for Janey. Certainly less fabrication. Scroll all the way to the bottom:

ECR has worked on one of these trucks, and its shows the drawbacks of the system:

Quite a transformation from the truck Gavin sold you. Looks great !


Jim C since you have a link for everything- I'm looking for a tonneau (sp?) cover for the bed of a 110 pickup.
I can't seem to find any ready made and ready to ship- trying to get the truck out of the uk next week. I want to cover some goodies lying in the bed ,second row doors, late style rear top sides etc...

Damn my memory is shot. I have seen both those pages before and forgotten about them.

I like that top, and is essentially what I'd need if I ever wanted a full soft top, but I'll see how things go with my current "CB runner" plans. I've got $76 invested in tubing for the B pillar hoop (shipped), and about a grand into the back door conversion. To make a surrey top, I need 2 old bestops, make some hoops for the rear support and get the channel for the top of the windshield (and maybe some nas style windshield trim).

Doug, good idea on the tonneau cover to make customs a breeze. Worst case, have someone box them up into a big box so at least stuff isn't sliding around.

There's a tonneau at the bottom of this page for the 110 "low-cap" - but I don't see anything but a tilt for the hi cap. I assume you're bringing in a hi cap? I've never seen a hi cap tonneau.

Thanks Jim,

I had seen that- looks like they sell bows for a cover but the cover pictured is for a 100" inch hybrid.
I sent them an email asking about a full size cover for a 110 utility with a pickup cab.

There are numerous Ifor Williams tops for Hi-Caps on ebay for short money. Unfortunately every hi-cap I have found looks like it's been beaten to death so this is a 110 regular/commercial/utility.

I meant the bottom of this page:

http://www.allwheeltrim.co.uk/defender.html#Defender

There's one for the soft cab, and another entry for just the cover. I dont know what fixings are required...

Blue looks great with all colors of Rovers - especially Bonatti Grey and Bronze Green!
