Thread: Aluminium T Top Roof

    Re: Aluminium T Top Roof

    Thanks guys, i was thinking if i cant find a esky to fit inside the frame to weld another horizontal bar from side to side on the front and back than some small vertical pieces

    The frame is 380mm front to back i ordered 1000mm of flat bar to weld on something to bolt it down with

    Noel do u think the 15mm plywood floor (glassed both sides) wont be enough to screw into? I still need to glass and paint the fuel tank cover so i can add those pieces you mentioned and paint over it while im painting the cover, i may do this for the T Top feet too if i have enough room around the console

    Trying to order my gear now as shipping is taking a long time, can anyone recommend a good led cabin light and some flood lights or something that will light up the bow and rear end the cabin light will be placed in the center of the t top the front flood light will be on the front edge of the t top and rear light on the back of the t top

    Maybe its wishfull thinking but i would like a cabin light that will light up the whole internal of the hull

    I will be ordering a single red/green light to bolt to the top front center of the t top roof and a small 100mm tall all white light for the rear of the t top roof that way the lights are out of the way

    Don't forget your all round white light needs to be at least a metre above the side lights.

    Just get one of those longer fold down white lights, it can still be mounted up high, or, move your side lights.

    Yeah i will mount the red and green on the sides of the top hull piece and mount the all white on the T Top, just didnt want someone to bring in a big sinker and break the lights

    Bent up many a acrylic boat screen. If your planning to drill it to fix, use polycarbonate, perspex won't cope.

    Make up a box and set an old single heater bar element down about 100mm, in the centre. It will take a bit of practice, but with the area that needs to be bent, heated to the right temp, it will bend with a good finish. The trick is to make up a cardboard template first, as the returns will be different at the bottom, then trace on to the polycarb... leave protective on the polycarb while cutting and bending..
    As mentioned, getting it the right temp, is the trick, generally, before the polycarb protective film melts, is the right time LOL.
    I'll try and dig out a photo of my old table/box bender.
    Unfortunately, practice is what will end up giving you your best results, if you can get some old offcuts to practice on first, that would be the go...
    otherwise, make a pattern out of cardboard and find a plastics supplier that will bend it for you, some will...
