We've been incredibly busy working on customer rigs and burning the midnight oil getting our Opt Overland rental builds done. Here's the completed pop top. All threee window layers zip out and roll upward so they can be secured and out of the way instead of hanging down in the way and potentially being damaged. We decided to go with a slightly tinted vinyl behind the privacy canvas, because we think it looks bit more classy than clear vinyl. Our screens are also more durable than others. Their coated with a UV stable coating and double stitched so they won't tear away from the canvas anytime soon. we used a reflective bungee the bring it all in and it looks sweet at night when lights hit it.

I love the work you're doing. It's great to have another top option. I'm also very interested in the black out panel for the rear glass. Can you provide more details, including installation? I have an EB wagon and would love a solution to securely black out the 2 rear windows on both sides (the full size panel and the small rearmost one). Thanks

I'll be highly interested in your process making the glass black out panel(s). I'm about to begin this for all 5 body side glass of my E350 Club Wagon configuration. The mounting tracks and Rotopax won't be needed, just the added security and convenience of NOT having all that glass is my goal.

Like that color BTW----kinda rare on most vans.

No not in Colorado any more but maybe some where else... the guy is not a trustworthy individual. I have two former business partners & myself who can back this up... doing business with him is a 50/50 chance you get what is promised or maybe just the run around... or your top won’t work correctly & come out like this & he’ll just ignore you.
