I actually like the original white top on my 84 but the later colors and body trimmings seem to look better with the body-color tops.

What you might think about is just painting the very top surfac ...

Hey folks,

Just wondering if you think it is worth it to paint the top of a Westy white in order to avoid transmitting too much solar heat to the occupants? Thinking out loud here, but it seems li ...
