Thanks for the props Johnathan.

I am waiting to hear back from Garth who is also interested in the curtain, so you'd be next in line. I am going to post it on the For Sale section right now with a photo or two. Look for it in a few mintues.

Thanks!

Paul

Thanks for checking and good to know! I was thinking about getting a bikini top, never thought about adding a sunroof to it...hhhmmm

So Paul of St Monica, what set up are you running now the rainy season is (should be) here?
I see the usual gaps around the roll bars right behind the driver and passenger head area. What about the intersection of the top, the wind screen and the door. That snap is right there?

I do not expect water tight, but I am trying to come up with a solution for around the door tops that at least has water streaming AWAY from the inside, and not into the foot wells

And I do like your set up.

Paulb from the Land of 1000 Trees,

With the "rainy season" supposedly on its way I have installed my Badger II GK, so there is no issue of rain.

And as good as the Badger II looks, I am still happiest when my truck is Bikini + Tonneau... Wish I could leave it that way all year. As for rain with that setup, I have been through it and as long as my truck is moving down the road, water is truely not a problem. It seems to fly off of the Bikini and the Tonneau.

I only really used the drop curtain once. It was on a trip from Santa Monica to San Francisco. And, well, there was really nothing positive to say about that drive. Bikini top driving 80 on the 5 in 100 degree weather with cow stench in the air... Oh my. How can people in Coalinga even survive. Perhaps it is completely run by cattle?

I'll never do that again...
