Re: Anybody have pics/writeup of a hard halftop?
I actually read that thread a week ago or so, and that's what got me brainstorming about all of this. What i've got in my head right now is exactly like that, only without the tail end of it, (i'd run a tonneau cover) and some sort of back glass behind it. I thought about using a windjammer, but that wouldn't seal up hardly at all (especially in a cold cold chicago winter...) So then I'm left with the main problem - how to mate the roof/sides of the halftop with the rear window area. I figure I'll have a whole bunch of fiberglass left over from the rear half of the hardtop, so I can maybe use some of that, or perhaps just make the rear wall out of sheet metal or some other material. Any other ideas/brainstorms would be appreciated.
John, thanks for the BMP. That's exactly what I have in mind - I'd thought of ditching the sport bars from the cage to the windshield, but I"m naturally wary of doing that... I'd probably end up making two openings for them to pass through...
thanks for the ideas! keep them coming!
