    Wow, I thought it must have beaten you! ........ The windscreen wipers first please. Did you go for silicone or rubber?

    btw with the query I had about my radiator, the 2H radiator will work like you said as long as it is 4 core and run an internal pipe to the other side.

    Saw this beautiful 2002 Tom's conversion at the local dealership, Camelback Toyota
    Personally I prefer aluminum poptop for durability and weight carrying capabilities

    Is there a way to read about or a video of the installation? I personally would like to know as much about the conversion prior to committing to buy.

    Bump to see if we can get some people to commit to buying some of these trakka units. I have been talking with Lukas and would like to get one but we need a few more people so that shipping is more efficient. Anyone else want in on this?

    You have Alu-Cab in ZA. That's better than Trakka, imo.

    I may be interested. I had a Trakka unit on my 45 and liked it. I have a pop top (no idea on brand) on the 75 but it's a bit tired and cracked and the sliding bed platform is not ideal when you just want to crash. The fold down bed is sweet.

    6k landed?
