As some of you know from a thread I posted last month, I was just about done with the idea of finishing this van. Thanks to the kind words and encouragement I've decided to trudge forth and see this one through.
I bought Bigfoot from a kooky old man who was a self proclaimed bigfoot enthusiast. Actually gave me the proper protocol if I encounter one, sweet fella. It was an El Kapitan conversion, and with grand intention and extreme naivety, I gutted the whole thing to start fresh. After months of trail and error with beds and flooring it sat like this for most of last year.
I did a few things, though sloppy, that have worked. Solar panel, roof vent, insulation. But for the most part just got frustrated. But I'm now taking things one project at a time and living with the fact that I might have to do them and re-do them before I get it right. So I did a rough draft of sorts for a trip out to Sedona a few weeks ago. Quick bed install from a cheap frame I bought from Amazon. Impromptu cabinet/table on the door and proper flooring.
I'm pretty pumped to keep going! But now I have the task of a new high top. The current one is leaking and I've wanted to replace it with a 24" bubble ever since I got the van. I've got a long road trip in February, so I'm in a bit of a time crunch.
I contacted Fiberine and was given a bit of the run around. They dodged the question of matching discountvantruck.com prices, and said they typically won't do installs on vans that currently have high tops on them. They asked for pictures of the inside of the top to determine if they would do the install. That was last Wednesday, and despite several calls and emails, they haven't responded.
So that begs the question: Does any one here know of a company, or person, local to Southern Ca. that does fixed top installation? I've spent hours combing through the forums and couldn't find anything. I'd love to just get the top from MSD, but I lack the space, man power, tools, skills and time to do it myself. Any guidance would be much appreciated.
