Well lets see... floor is complete, doesnt have anything to do with the roof though.

Working on new seat brackets... also not roof related.

I did just buy some sch-40 and a tubing roller, working on making the B-pillar connecting bar.

Its been so wet out I havent had an opportunity to fiberglass more on the hard top the fumes are to bad to do it in the garage.

Only problem i've run into on this project (besides having nice weather ) is I'm not quite sure how to attach the very large piece of plywood to the under side of the tops. Hmmm

damn... so you just run it through, tighten, run it through..... until you have the bend you need? That could get tiring. I wonder how easy it would be to just bend a little on the end exactly how you want it? Like the end of some roof cross pieces on a cage or something.

I dont think you could do a bend with it like that. I curved my whole tube evenly, its center is heighted about an inch up, exactly what I wanted.

cool deal... they do have a tubing bender as well.

I wanted to pick up a JD2 bender if I ever get a job and deploy, that is.

I'll buy a JD2 eventually, except my tools already take up to much space in my dads garage

Ok I hope to finish the b-pillar brackets today, maybe the roll bar and its brackets too.

Also plan to finish the outside surface of the hard top pieces, maybe attach the inner plywood too.

Thats two maybes, lets see if I can get all four things done today
