$20 mesh top

Ok... I've had a lot of PM's about my top and how I made it. Here goes... I got a piece of mesh from an army/navy surplus store, $4.97, cut it down to 32x43. For the plastic piece that fits into the window header channel, I used corner molding used for drywall because it already had the holes in it. $1.97 Cut it down to 5/8x43" strips, 2 needed. I got the edging from walmart in the fabric department for $2.97. Bungees and grommets... Yep, you guessed it, walmart, in the camping section for about $10. for both. Sew the edge of the mesh between the two plastic strips and finish sewing the three remaining borders with the edging. Add grommets to the two back corners then 2 on each side and 2 in the back (evenly spaced). Bungee it on and go show it off. Oh yea... One more thing, make sure that you use heavy duty thread. Happy Jeeping!!!

Do you have pictures of the work in progress?
Also, is that black mesh or the green mosquito screen that the military issues?

It could be custom but it looks like the overhead console by Tuffy

Ain't nothing custom about the console. It's just a run of the mill Rampage overhead console. I just needed somewhere to hang a CB on.
