As many will already know we are playing with the idea of having a high top fitetd to our current T4 before committing to this as a way of solving our space issues can anyone sensibly answer these few questions for me

As you can clearly see above the windscreen this roof stops rather abruptly now as i have some rust forming in that very area, would i be able to have this part frenched, cataloyed and finished to become as one without the overlap so to speak.

It appears to sit in the rain channel on the sides and i couldn't find a picture of the rear , but pressumabely it has a rough edge at the rear also so same question for the sides and rear i suppose

And in actual fact are all hi top conversions this damn rough as it goes to me that is a shocking way to leave it, or is this justa particularily bad job

Would it be wise to do this however or will it crack and end up looking worse ???

Not easy to find suppliers of made up ready to fit doors and windows as it goes i searched and searched whilst researching the Teardrop idea and didn't find many as it goes, it's all handy info for those embarking on a selfbuild anyway biggrin
