The owner, Doug Halkett, is among the six or seven of us BC Moggers currently discussing the 'how' and 'when' of coordinating our arrival at NWMF '07 -- at Sheridan OR, 17-19 Aug.

That roof almost makes me sick to my stomach. Otherwise it seems nice.

I bet it's not the roof it's the windshiled angle and height that throws it all off buttttt.. that's ok, it would grow on ya.... its just different; your mind wants to assemble the picture quickly using data in your memory banks and all the sudden that winshield soft top arrangement conflicts with the data causing a bit of brain strain. :p

He's got more head room.

Myself, I'm thinking cutting out the center section of my hard cabs windshield frame and going one large piece of flat glass instead of two ... I've seen a few pics of others that did this and it caused me some brain strain at first site..... but boy Its got to be better visually though. I'll start another thread on this idea soon enough.

I'd be afraid to horse-beat it too badly after putting all that time and work into her. But I bet she has a nice feel. The top does seem odd but I'd welcome the head room. Nice work Doug!!!

Granted, I am not a mog owner, not even very mog knowledgeable, but I think the thing looks pretty cool (and functional).

Besides, if you compare it to the look of those new dragonfly mogs it is along the same theme.

(Is that a jeep hard top put on back wards ? )
