Pop the top 2002 Chevy
Iíve been scouring all these forums reading as much as I can about adding a pop top. We bought 2002 activity bus, and I just purchased a pop top here off the forums. Picking it up next month. Our bus is only 66Ē inside, which I prefer because itís more mobile and gets 13/14 mpg with the 350 motor. Only has 65,000 miles on it. So far Iíve stripped the rear AC, removed windows and skinned it, removed interior, and all unnecessary wiring. Next is spray foam, custom door, rear bumper extension, and then pop-top. Hoping I can do it with a little help in a few weekends. The cool thing is are walls are flat, it has high ground clearance, is 80Ē wide, and was pretty cheap compared to the vans we looked at.
The wife and I are both wildland firefighters so the purpose is a winter travel rig for us and the pups. Plan is baja again and then over to the Florida keys and up the east coast in the early spring.
The top I bought appears to be in like new condition, so hoping a slight sanding job front and back will allow it to fit the curve better. (Any tips appreciated) last photo is the top, for a ford.
Any links to DIY pop top conversions would be appreciated. Kind of hard to find them.
