Re: new van build

Looks great. I love the lower raised roof poptop. I think my next build will be that finding these VW tops is getting harder.
thanks for the pictures
I would also love to see some pictures of that Branco in the background of the first picture.

Very impressive. Best of both worlds. I had an '02 Quigley w/Voyager and I thought it had terrible ventilation. Unbearably hot in June--sold in July. The penthouse has terrific light and ventilation in comparison.

Here some more pictures of them

Re: new van build

You did a really nice job cleaning up and reusing that top for the van. Looks like a very cool pop-top, and we need to see more pics of it when complete.

Love the Broncos! Got a 351W, ZF 5 speed, and Atlas (5:1) in mine.

Re: new van build

Thanks everyone. Of course you know I think all Broncos look better with a top bunk mounted on it.

Might very well be, but at most I run a soft top, most of the time a bikini top (insert jokes here), and sometimes without a top at all (insert more jokes here).

I did just place an order for a new soft top from BC Broncos though. It will support a roof rack....

Re: new van build

I have also built upper exo racks that go around a soft top to hold a top bunk unfortunately I have no pictures of them though.
