Hey,

I was wondering if anyone here has made their own canvas top. If so what fabric did you use?

My cousin had a custom hemp canvas put in his VW Westfalia but I need a more durable top for 4wheeling...

any thoughts...:confused0006:

and it's shiny/reflective surface should be good for bouncing off the heat on those sunny days!

I agree duct camp ductape would make a sweet top. Anybody know where to buy those soft tops for the 1st gen 4runners?
