Re: Custom rollbar under alucab

I'm getting the sense that you're implying that it's no easy feat..... :eh: No actually I am implying that once the aluminium canopy is on there you wont take it off again. Because inevitably, once you have it on, you are going to start adding little cupboards, and shelves and slides and lights and...

Re: Custom rollbar under alucab

Why do you want to retain the roll bar under the aluminium canopy? It just takes up a lot of very useful space and adds unnecessary weight? And an Aluminium canopy will do the same job as a normal roll bar. Google it, there are lots of roll-over picks proving it.
