VW T25 pop top make?

Postby RustyRed » 19 Jan 2019, 15:51

Hi

I recently bought a 1988 T25 with a side lifting pop top, but there is no branding or labels to tell me what conversions it is.

I have tried 3 times to load an image of my van and keep getting a message this is an invalid image.........really!

Any pointers is appreciated.

It looks very similar to mine but I don't have the very front bit. Sadly I cannot name it either, not done by a major conversion company I reckon.Image

Thanks Swebby.

It seems a good standard but you and me alike, what make it is who knows. Maybe this company made 2. :D :D

Mine also bows in the middle, does yours? a gentle push up fixes the problem until it rains :shock:

Hi Mocki, this is what it looks like up, don't think it is a viking from the ones I have seen.Image

RustyRed, the top doesn't bow down that I have experienced. Does the top of yours have a similar pattern to this?Image

Thanks Ant.... If you are referring to Rusty Red lol

Swebby, exactly the same. It looks like the only difference is I have a front piece where my sunroof is.I also have two windows.

I think over time and previous owner not paying attention to the roof, it bows when it rains as it collects around the centre square pressing. Really dont want to strip it, but I think a block of wood wedged between the crossmember and roof would do the trick.

Thanks to all the replies so far but the challenge is still on :D

the windows match the roof, bilbos always have large windows in , more than likely will have grey units

Thanks dbz. My interior is certainly grey. No units but sides are carpeted in grey.

I'll do some research on this manufacturer :idea
