    Any idea where someone might be able to pickup a pop top with glass roof

    This roof is part of an original dormobile factory conversion, i wouldn't imagine they would come up for sale that often as there seem to be way less of them around compared to vertical pop tops. Keep browsing the forums, ebay, gumtree etc and you might be lucky but it could take time. Consider putting something in the wanted ads. Also be aware that this roof has hinges on one side and tilts rather than pops up vertically so there is a heap of underlying hardware that you would need also to make it work properly. Might be easier to adapt a standard pop top and fit some glass??

    Grego / VZR69 doing some of the last finishing touches, a bit of rust proofing, squirt and spray everywhere you can,

    The hinge is in good shape, no major wear or slop, it just has a bit of surface corrosion which will be fixed up, have new teflon slider block being fitted also. Panels were hung on these photos for buffing and are still to be aligned etc. There will be no stone left unturned
