Custom conversion

Postby Jon Bisson GSY » 08 Apr 2010, 18:13

Hi,
I have designed and built this with the plan that it is used every day (why the kids seats are close behind the driver) and for the couple of weeks a year we are camping we always barby under the awning. I have just removed the pop top and replaced with 6mm Macralon. Next on the list is a single piece of foam for the bed, and an Aidan Talbot box (that's already here).
The bed is 5ft by 6ft and the storage ender has worked out really well. The Porsche seats are also really comfy. The door cards, headlining etc is beach faced 1/4 inch ply.
She's running a full RJES conversion, including excelleng exhaust, 2lt scooby sport engine, bilsteins, poly bushes, goodridges hoses and a few other mild mods.

Nice. I like it when people modify things to fit their own personal needs, obviously works for you.
Although I love the idea of a big sunroof, I'd like it to be opening as well. Could you not have just mounted it in the pop top instead, and had the best of both worlds? Purely a practical question.

the pop top had some issues and the kids are better in bunks over the front seat. I also couldn't justify dragging all that additional weight around all year for the sake of a couple of weeks.
I did design a tilt and slide option, which can be fitted in time, but time and cost means it couldn't be in the first round of work.
