    Any chance you can take a few detail pictures of the piece that fits to the top frame, from the corner of the windshield, extending backwards, over the vent window and door openning?? Any idea if these pieces are available somewhere?

    The early 1950 48/49 body style Jeepster is done, except for the top. Not sure if I will install a top, they are expensive, the vehicle looks better without it, and they start to deteriorate as soon as they go on. Here's a few photos of the completed project:

    Tops are over rated, at least for us CJ guys.

    Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    I'd vote for topless also.

    The heat shield on the firewall is a good addition. It is amazing how much heat that little L-134 generates on a warm summer day.

    I'm sure the L134 four produces just as much heat as this one, the L148 six.

    That's why the cowl vent is so nice to have. Pop it up, and your toes will be a little less broiled at speed.

    Sweet looking ride! The tops are expensive no matter what you try. I am hunting for a way to put a "Sun Shade" over my bald head and that's it. Even a Bimini fab up is costly if there is no roll bar.
