Mark from Sandhurst had an 'aftermarket' budget/ copy roof fitted to his '62 plate LWB van 2 months ago.  Having slept in it twice, he deemed it 'coffin like', had a Fitter laugh at him, then realising how awful it looked, brought it to us to have it cut off and replaced with a colour coded HiLo roof as a full fit. As the man said, "words can't describe how much better it looks & works", so we'll let the 6 before & after pics do the talking...

And this is after the SECOND time he had it back to the people who did the 'conversion' (check out the filler typically used to get the lumpy front 'pod' absolutely not necessary with a HiLo to fit - apparently the 1st time, gap between that & the lifting roof was over 1.5" to fill with lovely seeping water..!)

This is the offending article we removed -  chopped off in less than 1 hour & in the back of the van, awaiting delivery back to our customer...

Surely as it should have come from the factory? Front of van, sleek, mean & purposeful with its HiLo fitted...
