*Revised* 700-4 Roof w/ Glass Windshield and Rear Panel

Postby BigRiver » Wed Sep 11, 2013 9:24 pm

Got around to installing the roof and windshield. Wasn't hard at all but you do need a second pair of hands when lifting and positioning both the roof and windshield. It's advised to install the windshield before the roof.

A few more parts came in today. Installed the rear panel and laid out the bed matt.

The real panel assembly comes in two parts. The roof must be of to install this kit. The lower panel goes in first and then the upper panel. I can see how the lower panel would help keep rain, snow or even a clod draft from coming up from behind. In the pic, the bed is lifted and looking at the rear outside of the cab.

The seal is very good, like the front windshield seal, between the panels and the roof.

Very Nice Bigriver! I'm thinking of getting the windshield also. It will be especially nice when temps drop and the bugs been drivin me crazy. What's the driving like with n without? Notice any difference with dust circulation? I have a few buddies who installed them on golf carts and they say that the get lots more dust in the interior.

Looks sharp!
Soon as you get a chance take it out, let us know how the windshield effects the dust-in-the-cab situation.

EDIT: Swamper...we both ask the same question at the same time...LOL! Yep...the Rhino guys say you don't want a full front shield unless you have a rear to keep the dust out.

10-4 DG. I ordered the fabric rear panel today.. Hoping that will make a big difference. I wouldn't expect the windshield to dust the front much due to the coverage of the doors but I'm afraid the rear will keep a cloud of it.

All I drove on today was the asphalt street and a small amount of trail near the house. I imagine that the dust could be bad. One of the items I'm waiting for that is backordered is the glass rear panel. It does have a sliding window similar to a pick up. Who ever may happen top sit in the rear seats will have top fend for themselves. LOL!

Bigriver....I am jealous, yours is turning into what I want mine to be, if it would ever get here....

a few questions:
Is the windshield plastic or metal frame? Looks metal
Did you get the glass or poly windshield?
can you send some closeups of the attachment points for the windshield?
Are those some sort of QR clips that I see...can you remove it easily once installed initially?

ohana...yes, the windshield frame is metal, finish is good and made strong. It's the tempered glass version from Honda. Yes, it's the same type of quick release clips found on the roof, with the addition of two brackets that bolt to the windshield frame and then connect to the top roll cage via these quick release clips.
You can barely see in this pic, the clips holding the roof as well as the windshield.
