    Default Cobra Bimini

    Oh I have been seeing the San Marcos rally Texas rally....I think we called this one it is COLD THERE! Some even mentioned NOT driving in this cold weather...so was thinking I was missing something, but now I don’t think I / We missed anything...! Also if anyone noticed or saw a post talking about a “portable sun shade top” displayed on one attendee’s Cobra...YES had it checked out by JAMES YALE (Radical Roadsters) BDR , and he contacted me to say it was well constructed, and well done...closing with the comment...”it is pricey”....choke... $2,000! Mentioned also it was a fairly easy installation on/off...also he was ordering one for his shop...more details will be forth coming, and I will share it...

    Pricey at best $2,000 bucks! All you engineers out there could make one of these...couple rails, back piece, piece across windshield, upholsterer hook up some sunbrella fabric...and you’re in....couple straps with stops on the ends and slip into trunk area, close the lid and you’re off....

    I was interested until you said 2 grand. That is ridiculous.
    I talked to the guy last year and was kind of interested (not real happy about some of his design ideas, but it worked). I contacted him after we got back last year, but he didn't seem real interested in selling (?)
    I think I'm going to have at fabricating one myself. I've got some ideas.

    Do I need to get competitive? $1,997.25 better Or if you want a group buy of 3 or more, how about $1,917.69 plus freight and taxes.

    Bass Pro has a Bimini Top for their 20ft pontoon boat that you could cut into five sections and split the cost...
