Early 90's Jeep Cherokee roof fits really good!
I like it, Nice car!
Wow! Corrugated roof! Just like the Hi-dollar 'glass ones you see at Goodguise!
YEAH!!! My main goal was to reproduce a fiberglass style body! Sorry dude if you don't like it. I should have ask you first...
Clock...that is very cool. Another great solution "as seen on the H.A.M.B."
That is absolutely awesome ... I need a roof for my Jeep too, just gotta find me a Model A donor. Four-wheel-drive is the nutz.
Looks good. Wonder if the wood and vinyl from the A will fit the jeep that well.
Really looks nice. I like the ribbing on it, smooth filled roofs are too plain and ugly in my book.
I'll be scamming jeep roofs from now on for when I get a sedan.
Dude, great use of repurposing. How the hell did you figure that out?
Don't let others get your goat. I needed a block-off plate (where my old mechanical fuel pump used to be) and a spacer to get my fuel pressure regulator out a touch from the firewall. I know how some purist frown on using not tradition materials or objects (not all of em). But I made them from aluminum. Aluminum from the stand of an Apple Imac computer that died. It works. saved myself 15-30 bucks.
your tell me... I think i did okay.
At any rate... I really dig your solution and you have some built in rigidity to the roof as well.
I love guys who posts negative comments and boost their post count so they think they look like they are in the know...
I like the roof, but who am I? ...a newbie who drives a stationwagon...
You like it?...I like it! fuck all the rest of the fuckin fuckers!
You'll always have a few in the crowd.... But notice, the nay-sayers didn't provide an alternative idea.
I like it... and the rest of the car too.
I agree with Gearhead...plain roofs are just too...plain. The ribs add some character and strength too. Looks great. Good job.
And those are the nicest spacers/block-off plates I've ever seen, grf-x.
I dig it!
Another good source is the Chrysler mini-vans.
early 60s dodge wagons have a nice ribbed roof, and its in the center, which adds to the look, IMHO, but I like the jeep roof
staying dry is good.
I used a top off of a 65 Chevy 2 door hard top. It has the right contours both directions. No ribs, but I dont care for them on a coupe. Ribs are great on the sedan.Keep on building , neat car...........
Looks good to me. My brother use to rebuild salvage jeeps 15 yrs ago, a few times he bought new roof skins, if I remember correctly they weren't that expensive if you can't find a yard willing to cut one.
Great job at using something to accomplish your goal. Looks really good.
I like it, hot rodding is all about improvising anyway.
Hey thanks for all the positive comments, yep there is haters everwhere! grf-x, I dig the block off plate you did, awesome!
Looks great, and a lot easier to find than the traditional 58 ford wagon top. thank you for sharing.
thanks Rickybop and clockwork31.
Great idea and looks good too!
Like the roof, and with all that ribbing it won't be drumming on your ears...
Whatever works right? Isn't that what this place is about, hot-rodding and various ways to get it done.
