Re: 85 SMB On eBay

I was thinking about buying it for the pop top and appliances... If the van runs and is fairly straight, it's a terrible waste of the van. I'd also have to paint all the stuff I pulled from it...

Re: 85 SMB On eBay

That's about 1/3 the cost of having SMB install a top. Sounds like a good plan to me.

Re: 85 SMB On eBay

When those tops are installed, are they welded in or bolted in?

Wonder if I can sell the van with a big white patch (my old roof) welded into what would be the hole on top...

It shouldn't decrease the resale value any...

From what I've opened on mine, I'd have to say they are bolted in, not welded.

I'm sure a call to SMB would answer the question.

Do you ever find yourself wanting to start a collection?
