Ok more pictures of my build. I am liking the turquoise more as I add more white. The paint is single stage done by my friend a retired body shop owner. I am relegated to sanding and I get yelled at if don't do it right.

Tomorrow off to Florida. I think my Thing will spent the rest of its life in the sun as long as its not hit by a hurricane. Still needs to be wired and a little more adjustment of stance. Will see how this top holds up at 75 mph.

Made it to Florida ok. Did not make trip with top up. No rain for three days and no damage at my home from hurricane.
Going to switch to bug spindles to get more adjustment range. My Rebel wiring harness arrived. This will be my third build with them. Excellent quality. Hard to burn wire when shrinking connectors and good instructions.

What kind of battery box are you using and did you have to drill through the floorpan to install it?
