Neat job, but would have looked better with more glass areas on the sides. And the prices for this type of one-off job is bound to be this high i guess!

Default Vehicle Hard top builder for Mahindra Thar

Folks,

I am seriously considering buying one - and have a base estimate from M&M Customization that I have given in the Thar official review thread.

I want to know if any of you can recommend a good vehicle body builder preferably with experience building a hard top like Welcome to Facebook. I would like to figure out whether I can work out something cheaper the 2.5L that M&M quotes for the same.

It would be good if he is in Chennai (or at least anywhere south of Bangalore) and of course a reasonable one.

Thanks, Subu

I suggest you send a message to "HARJEEV". He is a very knowledgeable member from the Delhi area.

Aluminum is hard to work with and you will not find many skilled craftsmen willing to do this work.

I too am contemplating getting a hard top done on my 340 if I am doing AC on it., but if only it could come off as fast or faster than a soft top.
Particularly liked this Hyderabad Jeep's top, made to look like a soft top too.

Dear Bhpians, Myself and my good friend and fellow Team-Bhpian Rohan Jeorge (JeepGeorge) have been working on an idea of a really beatifull hard top for a while. We finally have a production version installed successfully. All design credit goes to Rohan. Details below:
  • ROGEOTECH hardtop is designed to match the Tharís original profile and contours. The design is fresh, original and not a copy (or as they say inspired) of any other existing tops. (The Italian top also looks similar to the wrangler TJ top). In fact this design was done by Rohan 4 years ago but came into production only now. The proportions are so good that the vehicle looks shorter in height than the original vehicle.
  • Fits to the original body without any modifications to sheet metal.
  • Made of high quality fiber glass materials, is double layered with PUF insulation which reduces heat radiating into the cabin, improving AC efficiency and also offers better sound insulation.
  • Large glass area gives good all round visibility. The hatch door glass is wide giving better visibility while reversing.
  • Even though it looks shorter in height, the standard headroom is not compromised.
  • The rear hatch door locks firmly and has a centrally placed handle to unlock.
  • So much detailing has gone into the design. The eagle eyed ones will notice that the rear hatch door hinges are concealed. (Even in JEEP Wrangler the hinges are exposed)
  • The gloss black detailing below the side glasses inspired by the shape of a Pistol with the Logo and branding is a nice touch.
  • Another notable detailing is the bonnet hump feature that continues to the roof.
  • The top's inside finish is also smooth but still it is provided with upholstery - available in black, grey & beige.

Fantastic Congratulations to both of you for pulling this off. The large side glass area is very refreshing, not to mention the overall combination looks smashing. Which make are those large LED driving lamps by the way (mounted on the top of front bumper)?

Beautiful looking hard top. The large glass area looks great and the proportions are looking perfect. Kudos to both of you. Respect
Can you kindly share some photographs of the interior finish?
Also, is the product available off the shelf?

Wow, that is certainly a looker, the proportions are spot on and actually enhances the looks of the Thar.
Could you please start a dedicated thread for this, I think it really deserves it, and maybe a sample work in progress of how it was installed on the stock vehicle, interior fit and finish, waterproof and sound insulation capabilities, rigidity etc. Some additional insight would help readers understand the product better.

Cheers!
