Running Topless

Summer Rover

I took the top off of The Rover earlier in the week. It is the first time I’ve lifted the top, and my main reason is that the seals between the top and bed really need to be replaced. Not to mention the fact that snow flies into the cab from between the lid and windscreen when I’m driving down winter’s road. There is nothing enjoyable about that.

What is enjoyable, is zipping around town without the roof. It’s a blast, so I may have to test drive it a bit more to get the feel for things before I replace the roof. Maybe even pull the spare tire off the bonnet and drop the windscreen down.

There’s nothing like driving with the top down through the smoke-filled air of Interior Alaska.
