    Doubt I'll do a full top. At least not something off the shelf. I've left myself the option to add zippers and back/side windows on this one. It wouldn't be hard to do, but if I actually need the full top I have other vehicles I'd much rather be driving in that case :beer:

    Nice work. Just so you know you mounted that spare the hard way. The tire pops on from the front. The tapered profile up to the back bead makes it very hard to pop over that way

    :rofl: thanks. It wasn't that bad considering.

    I've dealt with some tubeless bicycle tires that gave me a lot more trouble (and tore the skin off my thumbs) trying to get them seated. This was easy by comparison.

    Added some hubcaps. I like the look. Not the correct Tux turbines which are all too rare to find and way too expensive when you do, but at least period correct!

    Looking good! I ran with these AMC full hubcaps for a few years before I found a set of the Cutlass deluxe turbines found on the Tuxedo Parks. I removed the blue and red from the center.

    Those look nice!

    I figured going with the red & gold centers at least put me in the right ballpark year-wise

    Yes, and they look good too!
    I have a few of the red/gold hubcaps from the different years for wall art.

    The red/gold centers denote the Kaiser era Jeeps, and the red/blue were AMC. I think the hubscaps on nowhere's Tux came out around '68 or so on yhe Commando.
