Fiberglass hardtop - Roof portion only

$1000 - roof portion only - used but in good condition, no cracks or stress fractures, doesn't have alpine windows, very good condition. Will bolt to OEM Fiberglass hard top. Would prefer pick up in SW Florida, but will ship in one of our hard top crates. Typical shipping is about $2-300. I decided to run my truck with a "hard" bimini.

Do you make/sell a "hard" bimini? I would love to see pics of your setup. Thanks.

That would be great for winter if you could make a badger or other drop curtain work.

On the same line as Ron but slightly different: (wonder what other people would think of this type of setup)

Hardtop surrey with roll down canvas style sides and back.
The canvas sides and back (with windows) would be attached by sliding rails on the top (very similar to applications on boats) and attached on the bottom by either belt rail or snaps (94s). When all canvas is down it would completely protect the inside from the elements.

Sorry if we are detracting from your for sale thread, but this interests me as I would like best of both worlds (open air feel with a more durability/longevity of a hardtop.

Since this is already hijacked...

Or the exact opposite (ie hard sides, soft top).

That way, when the weather is amazing, I could just roll the top off, store it in the backseat until it rains again, etc. Plus, it sucks offroading with a nice soft top, and your soft top windows get all scratched to hell from tree branches. It would probably look like poo though

Yep. More pics please. Not worried about the condition of the truck, just the look of the top with the truck as perspective.

Are you looking to put it into production? Any rough ideas on price?

Taking Amity's and Ron's ideas slightly off track (although I like the hard top/soft sides/back idea as well). What about making a Truck cab version with a hard back? Sort of run the top in the summer and throw on the back panel in winter or bad weather sort of thing?

Truck cab set up with the C Hoop and cantrails removed would look pretty slick if its like I am picturing it.

Ian - I found some old pics of D90 Truck Cab tops both HT and ST - I thought it might be helpful.

Andy - Sry I don't mean to hijack your post and steer it off course.

Thanks Rufus. I have owned a TC before and a friend has one now so no problem on what the LR version looks like. Appreciate the help though.

What I was interested in was the idea of taking Andy's fiberglass short top and making a removable fiberglass TC set up out of it that fits a NAS ST and is easily convertable between just the top or the top and rear.

I agree - designing and fabbing a fiberglass truck cab that is consistent with the HT truck cab look (i.e. the first two pics) and to make it work so that it fits around an NAS cage would be incredible.

I also included the Truck Cab ST pics for those that were talking about combining the truck cab hard top and soft sides.

We're working on that, actually. hard HALF top and rear, compatible with NAS roll cage....funny you mention it. Price will be around $1500 for the setup but it won't be available until we get the doors and bonnets ready for production, sry..
