Home safe, drove straight through, 14 hour trip took 16 hours because of construction around Memphis area
I will be bringing a red Ddm Works sway bar that I couldn't use due to it hitting my air ride shocks, I am going to see if I can get some credit from Ddm Works but if not I was thinking of $150 if anyone is interested
I'm not trailering and I will be leaving early tomorrow from OKC
Hey brother I just realized I said speaker humps....that was my bad. I meant just the OEM pieces. I must have been looking at my speaker pods when I typed it....oops.

I am going to bring an OEM grill painted a close match to Navy Blue and the OEM rear speaker humps if anyone is interested in them.
I would be interested in the speaker humps, devil dog

I am sure there will be stops for fuel somewhere inbetween for the groups.
Groups of 4-5 so we can manage.

I used a piece of 1/4” marine plastic to make my visor. I heat formed it around a piece of pipe. Being black and sitting outside all the time the sun started to straighten back out. I had to put a metal framework under it to hold its curved shape.
I didn’t take pictures of it flattened. It has more screws in it now.
Will kydex get straightened out by the heat of the sun also? Since black tends to heat up quickly.
Not sure, I have never worked with it before, it might but yesterday was in the ninety's and it was still cool to the touch. I don't have the answers, I'm just experimenting, sorry if I'm no help
I was too lazy to go out and measure the area of my TD Top, so I guessed at 4' x 8' since I found that size during a Google search.Am I correct in looking at your pics that you started at the back and worked your way forward?
Are you relying on the curve of the Kydex around the frame to hold the Kydex in place or...?
Yes I did and yes I am. I was driving for a bit today on the highway at 70 and I had no problems. I will smooth out the edges and put a better curve on the flaps to help ensure that. It pops on and off easily
Did you need a full 4' x 6' sheet of Kydex? What thickness did you use? I saw a 4' x8" .125" thick sheet of Kydex for around $220-240, but it looks like you used thinner Kydex.
I actually only needed a 4'x5' piece. I used .093, I was about 130 with tax here for the 4x8
@Stinger , don’t know this product, but what about heat reflecting or does it get hot to touch. Just thinking bout clearance on top of head and in today’s heat of 104 might cook the little brains I have left. JUST SAYIN
Today is 90 something here, not hot to touch, they make gun holsters with it
Finiahed, need some finishing on edges and a little better shaping
I've been thinking along the same lines for my Twist Dynamics Gen 2 Top. I had originally thought about fiberglass or aluminum, but like the idea of Kydex since it can be molded or adhesively fastened to itself. I see you are using a liberal n umber of clamps. Are you then using a heat gun to form the edges? Would certainly like to see a write-up describing your efforts.
Yes I used a heat gun and those clamps. I have never worked with kydex before. It works well. I went up to 55 mph so far and not worried about it coming off.
What are you using? I have the same thing in mind, but using aluminum for my Bullet Speed top. I'm talking to my Aircraft buddies about it. There's a few guys at the airport that are really good fabricators.
I'm actually using kydex
