I'm in the process of designing and building a series of modular fiberglass hardtops, and since the styling of the top is along the lines of expedition vehicles I thought folks in this forum might be interested. Here's a concept drawing of the top on an LJ:
The top is assembled from modular components, and it will be possible to build half-cabs and full-length hardtops for everything from CJ-7s' to Scramblers to TJ's and LJ's, here's a drawing of some of the variants.
And some photos of a rough LJ concept model:
I've been posting the build on jeepforum, and I've gotten lots of great feedback and design input there, but I thought I'd probably get some great feedback on the project here, so that's why I'm posting. I'd be interested in hearing what you think of the project. I can also post lots more detail on the project if people here are interested.
I'm building the masters and molds for these tops as a personal project for my own Jeeps, but I've been discussing bringing these tops to market with a company that's in the Jeep aftermarket and they're very interested in commercializing these - so any feedback I get from you will be important info that could help us build a better commercial product.
