    ???
    ok ive seen these and im wondering if it would be a good idea. first lemme start off by telling you that i live in washington wich is known for wet weather, but sometimes its pretty decent. would a sliding rag top be practical on my truck? its a daily so it will always be in the elements. do you think that iw would leak causing my interior to mold? of for the ragtop itself to mold?

    here is a site i found that sells them. if your not too buisy, take a look and gimme ur imput

    thanx

    i don't know if it would leak,

    but its a very easy way to steal your ride,all u would have to do is cut the material and your in your car.

    my friend almost had her bug stollen the exzact same way,the only thing that saved her was the kill switch she had installed.

    something to think about.

    when i did mine the truck was in the process of being hevily modified so yes but i have seen some installed without painting use tape and a scroll saw and drill a whole in the corners thats the easiest way i found. just make sure you use lots of silicone around the cut part to prevent rusting.

    friend of mine had one on a suburban...it only leaked once and that was in a nasty ass downpour...the channels that drain the water off werent big enough so later that week we made some bigger ones with bigger hoses...two of his amps got fried because of that day

    if your worried about theft then make a hard filler headliner that will latch onto the frame on the inside...made a 3 piece for his 55'' which we wrapped in matching vinyl...it was pretty stiff...reinforced panel board with a fairly stiff guage aluminum, aluminum and panel board will have to be concave to avoid flexing and the joints were beefed up quite a bit...i forget exactly what i used on the joints but i believe it was some sort of stainless trim...they over lapped eachother on the 2 panels one faced up and one faced down and the center had the rubber seal for house doors to keep it from squeaking

    yes someone could still break in but it would be alot easier to get in by busting out a window....he was a friend so i charged him 600 to do it all provided he bought exactly what i wanted and never questioned me

    panel board is faced down and was 1/4'' and all the screws were stainless and countersunk btw....lots of liquid nails also

    if you do this dont make it one piece if your opening is big....the trim on the edges are about 70% of the strength....aluminum was mainly to deter the knife swipe after hearing metal against their blade...12 hood type pins held it up with cotter pins

    I always wanted a black canvas sliding rag in my ext cab silverado with a matching phantom top. I'd probly leak with my luck


    when the price halves, I'll buy one
