    Cheers mate, so the centre bit is just extra headroom, then storage at the back for the awning and shiz, and storage over the cab for plates, cups, pots and that kind of thing (like a big kitchen cupboard).

    Thatís my mate (he was supporting the cut out from underneath)... so yeah definitely a two person job and of course it didnít properly fit so loads of up down and adjusting. Held on (I hope) with Sikaflex 220 (which is the shiz apparently..).

    Yeah I did think Ďwhat am I doing as I cut the bloody great hole in my lovely van... but Iím pretty pleased with the result..

    Nice job . What did you use to stick it down to the roof. ? And how much was the overall cost as it's been painted black, don't they come white as standard,. Big pat on the back for the job done it looks well ,

    Come rain or shine I'm out in mine!!

    I wasnít sure about the colour when I ordered it but I think it worked out good..

    Yeah I do keep thinking about that... Iím going to measure her up and make a reminder in the cab to try and avoid that disaster ..

    Cheers mate. Sikaflex 220; yeah Iím pretty pleased. Well itís a black Gel coat (white would look tonk and Iíve never seen paint want to stick to GRP) and lay so cost an eye watering £240 extra . Total cost (colour, polish and delivery) an uncomfortable £1000 so not cheap; but Iím fairly pleased ..

    Iíve never liked the look of high tops but this one looks great. Will definitely consider this against a pop top now.

    Thanx , where did you get it? Was it the one on eBay, I think a 1000 pound well spent, considering the cost of a pop top, you've had a good deal their, and looks great ,

    Yep, http://www.shapesgrp.co.uk/ are the guys.. advertised at £600 but thatís if you are picking up a white one from their place .., yeah much cheaper then a pop top and you get a load of storage if you leave some roof (although Iím expecting the fuel efficiency to go through the floor)..
