110 soft top conversion

Just saw this on youtube. Is it possible to buy this stuff off the shelf or is this a custom item?

it'd be a nice 'kit' - and he keeps talking about a kit, so it seems there are plans to produce. I'd imagine Exmoor would have created patterns for the canvas. P&P did a lot of fitting in place, which could make the cage kit a bit tricky, but they've programmed the bender and built #1. That's the expensive part. I'd imagine there'd be demand. I'm surprised they didn't tie it into an A-hoop though - which is a common and produced part.

Hell, the amount if effort I'm going through to get all the NAS ST cage bits would cover shipping...

The youtube is a tiein with the articles they ran about the truck and the canvas top. I believe Badger does something for a 109 and/or 110 as well minus the rollcage. Actually its smart to just go with the rollcage from the middle and back cause then you dont have to worry about the bit that has to go through the canvas as you see on the NAS 90's. I would think it just simplifies the whole project

The cage is the custom bit. Allwheel setup uses hood sticks

One wrong move and that thing would pinch your hand off without missing a beat.

No doubt- see how carefully those guys grab the finished pipe and wiggle it out

Hells yeah! My very own ROW Beach Runner. It's not like I have AC to keep me cool. When my 110 was still in one piece, I used to have to slide all the windows open just to keep cool here in Florida.

Thanks Doug. Didn't know this option existed. So allwheel trim is different from exmoor trim?

Yeah me neither until I saw that video. I have always admired ECR's BeachRunners but it was too cost-prohibitive. My Series III has 2 tops, why not the 110? Haha!

Jonathan,

How much would you charge to make a rollcage like that? I would rather have a rollcage than hoodsticks!
