new idea - was Convertible suburban
The one reply I received gave me a new vision for the barn.
Cut the sheet metal off the roof. (where it is ribbed only)
Leave the roof beams in place and make a snap on Canvas/vinyl top for it.
Modify the side windows and barn door windows so that they can be removed easily.
Perhaps I can trim the rubber moulding on the bottom and sides so that the windows will slide out easily. I would need to mount some kind of strapping to hold them in place.
So with the top off, and rear windows out, and 4 front windows down, it would be pretty breezy in there!
May the the way to go without having to chop off any posts and alter the structural integrity of the truck.
I also had a thought about removing the bench seats and going with buckets. Including the front 2, I think I can get a total of 3 down each side. That would look neat, and give me access to the screaming kids.
I guess I really need a bus to cart my 5 boys around.
Thanks for the feedback
