Jeepbronco1 SUT build (my mini truck build) aka bobbed top

Aight so heres my newest build... I was wanting a truck type look and be able to take the dogs with me with out having them in the jeep with me. So heres the attempt . It started with a damaged hardtop i picked up for cheap. from there we set the jig for cutting the top half. We used a router and it worked like a champ. from there we ran into our problems..... I thought the top was very symmetrical... its not exactly. But this was a minor hiccup for a do anything POP's, from there we pieced this top back together , with out sacrificing strength or looks. For the reassembly of the top i used west system epoxies. We were recommend with GFLEX 650 system, great for plastics and SMC. Pretty awesome stuff check out there site (the Kayak challenge). Didnt need to use fabrics or any other materials. From there i started on the repair of the damage corner, just using pieces of left over SMC. Then came the oh **** moment, I hope this worth it.... I cut the role bar!!!! :affraid:

So now this project isnt done yet but ive made major headway....

Things to come.

body work
Upol raptor liner the entire top
custom build the bulk head
Install the rear sliding window
customize the roll bar

Here are some photos of the process!


I hoping to have the SUT done by the end of the month but will see.
prepped top for cutting and epoxy


pops making the CUT



the assembly











just wondering what it would look like with stock window..... but its a no go





Dont make fun of me, I know I know the rear tires dont match !!! what can I say, im cheap!!!

Yep thats the plans with bulk head and sliding window, there will be a piece blocking all of that off, also considering a cover over the lil bed.

Looks awesome. And just so you know I am stealing your door handle idea (but I live in NJ so we won't be crossing paths )

I'm on my iPod, so the pics are small. I didn't even notice the handles. Those look pretty cool.

The top looks amazing! Very good work.
