This week, we built a custom tonneau to fit the roll bar-equipped Bugeye above. Kenny carefully templated the roll bar cut-outs (above) and then transferred that template to the deluxe tonneau we sell in our catalog (click if you would like to order one). He made an excellent product, which you can see completed below.
But what about a top? There can be no top bows on this particular car, since the bow holders were shaved when the roll bar was fit. Thus a bikini top makes the most sense, using the roll bar as a hood stick.
Once more the template paper was used, and once again Ken delivered a superior product. This little pocket racer now has a fitting bikini top, that looks like it has been on there since day one!
Here’s the finished product (below). The bikini looks quite fitting for this stripped-down little street racer. This car is an online/EBAY purchase from Texas, purchased by an LA resident. We picked up the car in Texas and brought it here to Connecticut for sorting and custom features as shown above. When we are done, we’ll load this “minimalist” Bugeye onto an enclosed trailer for a long trip cross country to its new home in California!
