evening all

right my van is going in for the conversion next weekend and im having a pop top fitted tooRasp:

this is my van

http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i201/diggersg40/T4.jpg

my idea is to have the roof black just to be a little different:)

what do you guys think i cant make my mind up :D:D

it would mean i have to paint my roof sometime this week (not a problem as im a painter) so when the pop top is up the van roof is black too:)

any comments would be great:ILU:

black it with metal flake (down to the line just above the window)and stick a rear door spoiler on it painted black as well.

Nice, looks a lot like mine as mines colour coded with tinted windows, just needs lowering and I cant decide by how much!

The pop tops look pretty cool on them too, i'll have one fitted some time but not for a long while at 2k! :)

your thinking on the same lines as me matey:D

i dont think it will be metal flake but maybe mettalic we will see and im liking the idea on the spoiler might look at that when i get my van home:)

What about an orange roof on mine??

Matt,

Thats one very clean van :cool:

White and Black in contrast is a bit of a classic as far as I'm concerned,

So that would be a big yes:ILU:

Cheers Ben :ILU:

needs to come down the sides a bit you can only see it from the front unless your 8ft tall:ILU:

i did think that but you can see it alot better than youd think i have only got 130mm clearance on the front mind! the roof line is about 5ft8 as i can see nearly see on to the roof and only being 5,11

It also worked out better for a finish line for the spray.

Less is more!
