Yes! Absolutely right. I forgot to mention that. Arifji, Vaibhav please note.

Hi Al,

will post pics by this weekend for sure,

Re. the seats, no not yet. after a few thousand Kms on the Thar, the need for good bucket seats (driver) is emerging.

So now am looking for Scorpio's seats.

On a lighter note, visited a dealer in Kurla last week, he tells me sir .. please give me your preference in a week I will have them for you.

The nonchalant and callous attitude of the dealer made me think, Am I abetting a crime here.

Regards

Hello Shivshanker,
Although it should not be a big issue to install a wiper on the rear door of your Thar HT,since the rear door is of Bolero's, I don't know if rear defogger can be installed & that too reliably.
However for the fogging issue, have you tried out anti-fogging sprays available for windscreens?
I think it should solve your problem. Just spray & wipe. The glass should remain fog free for a few weeks atleast.

Try this:-
http://www.amazon.in/s/?ie=UTF8&keyw...l_21dzoed6q3_b

At 1/100th of price of defogger

P.S:- I have no commercial interest in any of the products displayed above.

Thanks & Regards,
Varun

Saw this HT Thar at Calicut today. Looks similar to HT on the Ktym yellow rubicon mod thar. By far seems to be the best design for a short HT.

Nice profile - would be nice to see more pics front and rear.

I wonder who makes these? Surely it can't be a secret on this forum.

Received the following via email from Bimbra.

Bimbra FRP Removable Hardtop V2.0

Quote:
Features:

-Only three piece Fiber Glass Body in Matte Black Finish. Three piece design chosen to ensure that there is zero water leakage & no rattling sound. Also assembling/installing the hardtop is much easier.

- It is easily removable with minimum use of silicon or any other sealant in Installation.

- 2 inch thick wall, strong enough to take 100+ kg weight on top. Option of installing roof rails & carrier on top.

- Dual Layer hardtop with PU injected inside the body ensures that the body is insulated, hence making it noise proof, weatherproof and durable, even for off-roading. It also makes the A/C inside very effective.

- It requires no alteration to the original body, no cutting of the B-Pillar or any extra holes. The fitting is made using existing holes of the Thar body.

Note the clearance lights along the front roof line on this Bimbra hardtop. It is a nice safety feature and helps make the Thar more easily seen at night. I think night drivers sometimes misjudge how close a jeep is to them because of the narrow set headlights. The clearance lights are an attention getter.

Looks quite nice but I guess the B pillar has to be cut off for that short design.

It looks like a normal B pillar to me, a Thar owner. Perhaps the roof between the B pillar and windshield is a little bit lower than stock. Since your head is mostly under the sheet metal adjoining the B pillars, you should lose no headroom if this is the case. If you sit forward of this sheet metal, you are short in stature and the small headroom loss is of no consequence anyway.
