Bulkhead & Hardtop are fitted.
Next step is to seal the bulkhead around edges.

Looks great. I am jealous. And frankly, impressed with your skills. I know this is not a project I could undertake!

The new cavity the floor creates behind the seats as shown in this pic, how big of an area is it? Is it deep enough for things like winch remote, tow strap, etc.?

Decided to rhinoline the interior of the bulkhead & surrounding areas.
I thought it turned out real nice with the contrasting silver rollbars.

Smoothed out a line beneath the door, so now there is just one seam instead of two. I like it much better.
