That looks nice. Part of me now wishes my van didn't already have a raised roof. While it would be nice to have a bit more headroom and height for a platform bed as well as having a better surface for mounting solar panels on, part of me can't see cutting off and throwing away a perfectly good (and somewhat uncommon) Turtletop.
Looks like Fiberine cut the metal roof as far back as they could get it. Leaves you lots of options to trim it out.
I was planning to leave the last rear cross-brace / roof in place for storage and rigidity. Decided to let Fiberine hack it off morning of install. Plenty rigid back there with top on and easy to add a shelf/box for storage.
Buffalo (Chris) and NRobert10 (Rob) came over to check out the new top last night . They both liked it a lot. Full time standing room is pretty amazing... Both seem eager to convert from pop-top to fixed-top.
I'm deep into "Analysis Paralysis" researching insulation and electrical. Trying to keep it simple but future proofing has me locked up good...
Current insulation plan: Ensure plenty of paint on all metal surfaces followed by a radiant barrier like Attic-Foil then half inch Rmax R-Matte Plus-3 Polyiso. Will double sheet this on the ceiling and use baffle insulation everywhere else I can stuff it.
Wiring plan needs all my attention now... Need vs. Want segregation time..
