Fibre Glass Hard Tops


Can we have a headcount of anyone interested in getting a Fibre glass hard top, there is someone willing to make them using an original new one to make a mould. There will need to be at least 8 orders, approx cost $1000.ea This is probably the only chance we will have to get one .

OK The news you have all been waiting for The original factory hard top which has been in storage since 1969 and never been on a Buggy has been loaned to make a mould. It was picked up in the Yarra Valley and taken to Western Victoria and trial fitted to a CB (just to make sure it fitted ) It has now been taken to Echuca ( to one of the best Fibre Glass men in the state ) who at the moment is making a mould so finally its all systems go ,you will have to purchase a back glass window which is a standard VW part (dont ask me which one ) and you will have to fit the metal angle to the top front and back should be the same as the soft top ones .The cost should be around $850 and they would have to be picked up at Echuca Just remember no one is in this to make any money its to help the CB comunity and if you wanted a soft top made it would probably cost more. Can we have some numbers of interested people it will be cheaper to get them made in one lot than just a one off at a later date Regards Arty P

Heh Arty, yep am still good for two.

Perhaps if you can upload some photos that might motivate any fence sitters.. I am likely to go on a road trip to collect so anyone wanting one from qld I could probably help out with others.

OK, so we finally have the first one and it has been fitted and looks great I am trying to work out how to post the pictures ( Photo Bucket has changed since I last used it ) The cost will be $850.00 unpainted inside or $900.00 with a Flow Coat Mist Grey on the inside (you will be able to have a different color inside if you want ) This price is including GST ex Factory at Echuca You have Lindsay to thank for all of this I am just the messenger He is on this forum under the name of Buggy6pack so if you want to get in touch with him send him a message

Picked mine up..


Peeps,

I picked my up two black gel coated roofs today and they are fantastic. I cant recommend them enough.

I play around with fiberglass so I know what is involved and these are great value for money, they are being sold at cost price. They even come with an individualized plaque - ours are # 3 and # 4.

If anyone needs any photos let me know, but they look like the white ones, but shiny black.

Cheers

Peter

ArtyP,
That top is really sharp looking! Outstanding!
You and others went to a lot of work and effort to pull this off. Well done.
Who owns and supplied the donor model for the mold production? They deserve a big round of applause for willingness to participate in the project.
Btw, what are the KO #'s of your buggies? I see the second CB on a rotisserie in the backgound of your fifth picture. Do you have CB runnning gear for that, or do you just have the body?

BrisDubba,
Why don't you post a couple of pics of your black gel top here to give everyone an idea of how a color other than original factory white looks? So you bought two tops, is that right? Do you have a second CB also?

Regards,
Steve

ArtyP,
Well, if you had a hand in the top project, no matter what you did, my hat is off to you sir. And everyone else involved! I just can't beleive how good that looks.
Where are the tops being fabricated?

I went looking for the thread for KO 401 you talked about. Think I found it. Is this it?
Finally I am ready to start my Resto.
http://forums.aussieveedubbers.com/viewtopic.php?tid=85001&page=1 
In it you talk about your body "jig", which I just referred to as a "rotisserie". Think of turning meat over a slow fire. :lol: A very handy apparatus for restorations!
Been a bit of a long haul, eh? :blush: :tu:
I have to say I personally think you're doing a pretty good job. You are ten years older than I am. I'm not sure I could accomplish what you have, even at my age. Well done!

Regards,
Steve

P.S. I think the forum is long overdue for an extended update on KO 401 progress. Surely you have some new pics you've snapped along the way. We all need some entertainment after Bill Moore's untimely passing.

I just got back from picking up me Hard top and am very happy with it ,even though it may be another year before I need it , ( thought I should get it before the price goes up ) but I must say I am surprised and disappointed there was no one on my 1000 KM trip home that was interested in having a look at it. It is now in my workshop at Port Stephens if anyone is interested.

Arty,
Glad to hear you safely collected your new hardtop.
They sure look nice.
All of us love pics, so any time you are able to snap a few recording your progress, don't be shy. Please post them.
Gotta keep stirring the pot here in memory of Bill.
Regrads,
Steve

Arty,
Who is the good soul that provided the excellent original hard top to make a mould???
To my knowledge, that was never mentioned.
It's my opinion that individual deserves a big round of applause from the CB community.
Well done!!!

Regards,
Steve
