02-17-2008, 05:34 PM
so far the only bad thing i have found and i havent wheeled it and thats
the exaust come back into the cab between 20 and 30 kms and its a little cold but its a totla summer vehical

02-17-2008, 07:37 PM
why not chop the whole roof and replace the windshield frame
might be easier than hammerin on the old one to try and get a windshield in there

02-17-2008, 08:24 PM
because i want some kind of a top
and it would look like a scout
