Camper woes

Well one of my campers was smelling a little rank. So we intervened and forced a shower upoun him. Traveling from Oregon to Indiana can leave a film on a guy. Had a little help form Coops Monster Machine.

Anyone using someone other then Badger Coachworks for custom tops.

I know where that top was origionally made. For that mattewr I know where it was origionally ripped too.

I would suggest a marine upholstery shop. They do boat tilts all the time, and have nice durable WATERPROOF fabrics.

In that last pic, are the rear shackles all the way up against the frame?

When you said Camper I thought you meant like this...





....seriously though, I love that series rig...I think Slade had posted a pic of it in the Pic thread in some super-hazy PNW Rainforest...such an amazing pic.

Beachwood Canvas does a lot of Militarty tops. We have had a few MV tops done by them and they do great work. We were going to send the Santana top to them and have them copy it, but Badger says that that have the top on the table and will start work next week (was said 2 years ago)

Ike doesn't need a top on that truck, he's a hard core Rover nerd.

Now, had he stayed in Indiana where the weather is less clement, he might have need for a top.

That is an extremely awesome truck. How on earth do the front bars for the cage work? Does the firewall have big holes bored through it?

Holy Crap

Holy crap, Pendy learned how to post photos! the ragged top on the truck finally gave way. Whoever made it used pretty shitty matterial. Thanks to Pendys tarp and some trashbags, I made it home dry. I will be replacing the top soon, along with the crappy setup holding it to the truck. Will use twillfast more than likely, sunbrella is too thin IMO.

-Ben - bars attach to bulkhead, bulkhead is reinforced - apparently they work; its been on its lid a few times

-UPOVER - Shackles are 3-4 inches from hitting the frame, youre seeing the fuel tank in there

- Bertha - Its a good truck but Ive got a lot of work to do to make it a great truck.

Regards
-Ike
