how do you make your CF's windscreen/roof look like this?
« on: February 12, 2011, 01:05:29 AM »




Hey im a noobie.
See how the windscreen is vertical instead of sloped. How difficult would this roof and windscreen mod be to do to a standard early 70s CF?

The first picture looks like its just a normal bedford screen standing vertically. No idea what the second screen is from.
You'll probably find those top two where based on the bedford tray version with the body being fibreglass or alloy.
It could be done, say to the van in the 3rd picture, cut it off at the top of the pink all the way around, make up a box frame, cut the windscreen frame from the other bits, stand it up and join into frame.
Would probably be easier to start with an old ambulance
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"

Hey busy, you can buy the fibreglass roofs here in oz, and there are companies that do the complete modification. As for the windscreen, i would of thought you would need to cut the complete window frame out and re-weld it back in at the angle you like. I would say that aerodynamics and fuel would be s**thouse though lol  ;D ;D

actually, now that i look at pics 1 and 2, they are not cf windscreens, they wrap around the side to far, compared to the bottom cf. Unless i am blind.

the top one looks like a cf screen, would have a big blind spot though
