The dokas are fun, I couldn't figure out how post a video of the top on here. So I uploaded it to our Instagram.

Edit: let's see if this works. The full up and down time is quicker than any other pop tops up time

It works, but it's sideways.

Looks promising.

In defense of the video being sideways it was Whiskey Wednesday at Opt Overland when this happened.

A little more progress on the top, it's been insulated with recycled blue jean material, the fan hole is cut out and it's been upholstered with charcoal colored fabric. Time to flip it over and color it up to match the van. Have a good weekend all.

A couple more projects for Magilla. I have a working prototype for awning mounts that will work with a pop top and just finished up the black out panel for the driver side rear glass that I plan to mount a set of tracks and a rotopax onto once it gets back from powder coat.
