Smile Hard Top 550

I am looking to build a hard top 550 and would like your help with ideas and pictures. I am looking to put in four seats similar to the Thar layout as seen at the auto expo. Any ideas where the hardtop can be removed with a few bolts and such to make the jeep into an open top one are welcome..

Thanks in advance

cheers

It might be worth waiting a few months to see if Mahindra offer a hard top for the Thar which we might be able to use on our 550's.

I guess the MM540's Stallion or Roplast fiber tops should fix on MM550 too, a second hand one should come hand to your need with rear full door kit.
