Wow. First Tithonus I have seen with a sand color top. I like it. I'd love to see more pics.

Mine is not a Tith project truck. Just a run-o-the-mill ex MOD 110 three-door. You get the idea though.

Fraser was super cool and emailed me these diagrams. It appears that I only need the parts from the first diagram attached (header rail and channel). Can anyone confirm if any of the other diagrams have parts needed for the conversion for a Tithonus/Wolf?

You will need the header bar, vertical door channel ( LH RH ), horizontal door channel ( LH RH ) , and 2x hood tube supports and assorted brackets and bits. Tail gate with all of those fixings.

Not the door channels. The hood tube supports maybe if they fit another model.

I think I over looked the hood supports. Is that RRC8516 on the bottom right diagram? Thanks for pointing that out to me!

I have heard that the ECM hood does not fit Tithonus vehicles properly. The main problem is the front where it attaches. It would require some modification to work. I wound up buying one off of eBay that Solarguy found for me (thanks!).

I'm struggling big time with this soft top. Am I supposed to be drilling the door top pieces? I can't figure out how they are supposed to fit. None of the holes line up. I am hoping someone can shed some light on how these pieces fit together.

The last pic looks like how it is supposed to.

I'd slacken all the bolts off, including the roll cage, get all the bolts through their holes using a screw driver to pull anything way out of alignment so the bolts will go in then tighten everything up bit by bit. There's a lot of tolerance on a land rover, thats why nearly all the bolt holes are slots. My roof panel was inches out at my first go at fitting, the door gaps were all over he shop but it bolted up alright in the end.
