Bikini top

This has to be pretty tame for a modification, but it is well done and could be an inspiration for someone to take to a canvas supplier.

Spotted in SEQ on the side of the road, so I don't know who owns it, who did it or how much it cost, but look at the pics and see if you like it.

The rear side looks to be fitted well enough to the divider panel to be waterproof, but looks like it also might be removeable. Window plastic is zippered and can roll up, or a "Privacy" cover can be untied and rolled down to cover the rear window. Without the owner's permission (vehicle was parked on a busy public road with no one about), it was not possible to look at the interior to see any internal fixings.

Except for the rear most tilted section, it ‘s actually pretty close to an in-service* modification that was made to GS Perenties when converted to FFL.

Cheers

* the canopy conversion, together with the whole FFL conversion was done at unit level and was later deemed ‘illegal’. FFL’s were subsequently withdrawn from service and returned to original GS configuration.
