Bubble is formed and fits great, seals ordered for the rear window to finalise fit. Front corners both fit and have been powder coated. Need to make the brackets to bolt top to soft top ferrules next.
Have tried adding photo attachments, but failed. :twisted:

High Stewbie,
Yes keen to see the result of your endeavours.
You may need to check the size of photo. It won’t load if it’s too big. More than 500k ?

Hi Pete,
Cobra will be there, depends if I get the top finished. Currently prepping to pre fit rear window.
All brackets made and powder coated and just need to finish the back / bottom edge of the bubble to fit to the rear window.

Wow. That looks very professional I must say. Re profiling the back window to take the roof extension. Well done.

That looks awesome! Superb job forming your "Gurney bubble", paint looks deep enough to swim in, and the screen straps are a perfect detail touch.
Can't wait to see it for real.

Cheers guys.
Nigel P has got to take a fair amount of the credit for making such a good job of it. If your looking for paint deep enough to swim in, he's the man! 8)
I think he will agree, it's not been straight forward..

That was a sneaky preview Stu, before you even saw it in the flesh and finished 😉. I'm really glad you're happy with the end results, I think that the roof really suits the car, especially with your home made "Gurney" bump.

As a customer you must be one of the best out there, it was a pleasure to work on it for you 😉
