Looking for hightop installation.

I'm looking for someone to install a high top in my van. I have the top, doors, and all the trim. Planned on doing it myself, however due to injury and up coming surgery I wont be able to do this for quite a while. I am located an hour outside of Vancouver BC. I can drive to you (depending on when).
The van is a 2002 EB the high top roof is in amazing shape.

You can try asking Tufport to do it. They are located in Delta BC, I think install was $1000 CDN, but that was if you were buying their hightop.

I've been thinking about adding a hightop. Anyone have personal experience with Tufport and/or idea of cost for their topper with labor? (Have 2001 Ford 15 pass) Thx, Steve SF Bay Area

The Tufport Grand sport is a great looking top for the E Series. I was able to check one out a few months back when a client brought one by the shop. Quality was great, the down side and it was a big one to me... the install it was not very good. I was shocked that he said they did the install and I pressed the issue several time asking if he did the install? His answer was no, tufport did the install. We had to chase leaks and the bad thing was they (tufport) took part of the roof and bent it up and then tried to put stainless screws in to the bent up portion of the roof, it didn't work and was the most bizarre install I've ever seen... Personally I ask them to show you pictures or a video of how they install there top... this particular top was not installed correctly in my mind or from what I've seen in the industry. Just some food for thought...

I just talked to the guys at Tufport. I'm surprised as they have a good rep in Canada. I did think that bending the roof up was a bit different. Thanks for the input! Steve

I’ve also heard from someone their install wasn’t very good. This was around a year ago when I first got my van and was in the market for a high top. Me and another member here installed my current roof, screw and glue method and I have not had any issues for over a year.

I’d be happy to help but it’s a two person job.
