Are you wanting new? The Exmoor PVC Wolf top is very nice. Exmoor thinks (or thought) that this particular top doesn't fit Tithonus so don't bother asking them about compatibility. You'll need the B-pillar hoop, the window/gutter frame pieces with the curved piece that goes over the window, the piece that goes above the windscreen with the four dogs to lock the top down, and a drop tailgate and hardware if you don't have it already. Brian Hall has the part #'s for all.

It's very easy to make the top work. Just remove the Allen-keyed bolt that holds the over-window roll cage bar to the B-pillar and slide the top in the gap between the roll cage rubber spacer and the B-pillar. Once you've finalized top fitment everywhere else, take a hot poker and melt a hole in the top for the bolt to pass through.

Chris the truck and top look good. What gutter system does this top use? I have never seen Wolf door surrounds that are galvanized.

I bought the last s/t that Ken had which is like Chris' but with windows. They came from Blanchard in the UK, and require all the bits Chrs detailed as well. Fit is awesome- will post pic later...

Abe,

The gutter system is just the standard Defender soft top setup. Mine are galvanized but I don't know if they're Genuine or Allmakes or something else. These were new-take-offs that Brian found for me.

Here are some more photos of the top for the curious:

Chris thank for the info. For all of the people interested in putting a soft top on a Tithonus, this is the way to go because now , some of the parts on the Wolf gutter system are NLA.

Besides the above-the-window rollcage bar piece, I can only spot three differences between my setup and what I think the Wolf setup must have. First, the above-the-window curved piece from the standard 110 ST does not match the steeper angle of the front section of the Wolf top. Secondly, the B-pillar hoop sits more forward than whatever the Wolf has. You can see how the Velcro loop doesn't quite reach around the galvy hoop:



The third difference is that I don't have the roof support bars that mount to the top of the roll cage between the B-C and C-D pillars. You can see that there are supposed to be bars here but I don't have them. Perhaps one of the rebuilders who parts out Tithonus trucks has a set:

No, and away this week- will get some when we return. Very straight forward though.

Another thing on my top- the top side loops in the top are too big, indicating the need for padding. I assume 1.5" pipe insulation will do the trick...

Chris, that looks like a good cheap way to fit the soft top. The correct bits are very different and have gotten very expensive. I have the part # for the alpine bows that you are missing. Let me know if you want that info.

I know this is an old thread, but was wondering if someone could post the part number for the tithonus bows and/or where to get them.

If your on Facebook, join Wolf and Tithonus Land Rover Owners Group. They have loads of manuals, part lists etc uploaded to the group. Members are very friendly and a few can list part numbers off the top of their heads.

You can easily make your own out of conduit and a welder. The only thing non-rover about it is that it's inexpensive.
