Gutter Kit Pictures

Does anyone have any gutter kit pictures? I am looking to make a gutter kit for the Best Top soft top from aluminum. I would like some close-ups of how it attaches to the windshield frame and the horizontal bar that connects the windshield frame and the rollbar.

That will work! I plan on starting this weekend on cardboard templates and then the following weekend on the aluminum pieces.

here are some pics of a 110 that was at badger getting a new top. This is also the truck that went up in flames after the new owner drove it about 60 miles.
I think you can get the top portion of the gutter kit from RN. The bottom portion will need to be fabricated.

Good Luck

Is Jesse doing the rebuild?
Hopefully the guy had full replacement.

Thumbs up

Ron,


Thanks for the pictures. That is a shame that it caught fire. Anyway, the kit I am going to make will work with the Best Top set-up. I plan on using the existing horizontal rail with the three snap buttons and removing the upper door rubber seals from the soft top. This system will work like the original galv set-up with minimal alteration to the original top.

Mike
