Hi, fk7,
There is progress on it but much slower than anticipated, it is now at the paintshop after the body works, hope fully this painter will hand it over in a month as he swears, but once you are in thier net theres no escape.
As already posted on this forum, it i going to be youthful and sporty as compared to my white 540. When done I will surely post all I can.
Regards,

Hi Faizal,

I sent a PM to you regarding the soft top frame.Anyways,here it is again.
Are the front & rear soft tops two different units ?
I'm looking for a frame which can be dismantled in very little time.I think this is the perfect design(scissors).Is it possible to post some more pics ?Our mechanics understand pics better than words.

Chandan,
I replied to your mail last evening, with three photographs of details for fabrication. Yes my top is sectional. The first part you see on the jeep like a bikini top, the other rear half attaches to this by welcro on top and the rest on standard Mahindra channels, which come on the B pillar behind the front doors. Chek in the web master or someother place of TBHP still if you do not find my reply, write to me on fazalaliadil@yahoo.co.in and I will reply to all your queries reg. the top.
Regards.

The simplicity of a scissor top frame is all in these 2 pics. make sure you get a good fabricator, use heavy guage for frame and bracket. Notice stablizing pipes on top centre of frame which will get bolted to B pillar this will avoid any shifting of top or frame.

Thanks for the pictures. Regarding the stabilizing piple, correct me if I am wrong, it will be welded through the two pipes of the scissor frame and will finally get bolted just under the B-piller.

Default Wrangler canopy mounting

Please look at the Wrangler. The scissor superstructure idea can be taken from there.

I think this Jeep is CJ5 not Wrangler if I'm not wrong.

Anyway the scissor top design in here is nothing but the same Mahindra Classic type.

Both Tiger top and Mahindra got this structure for Mahindra Classic/ CJ3B and CJ5.

You can give it a try as the frames are still available for Classic in Mumbai.

This is a CJ 7.
@ trammway, the classic frame will be a proper fit in the 540 as well (from the height point of view)? Doubtful whether I will get this type of frame in Delhi. Till now haven't been able to find a good fabricator around.

Kandisa,
No welds, as this frame will come off as a square structure when removed and lose it's flexible folding concept so the top center pipes also are attached to eachother by nut n bolt, only small brackets will be welded to the pipes which has a bolt size hole on both inner ends of pipe for the front to back facing stablizing pipes.

No pain dude, call Atlast Motors of Grant road, Mumbai. Send him the DD and ask his help to send it as a parcel. He will insist you for CST number to send as parcel, however very genuine and deals are always good with him.

As I referred, atlast 7 soft tops and frames have been purchased by my friends remotely.

Mr. Prakash of Atlast is a best person to deal with.
