Powder coated trims have been glued into place. We couldn't agree so the bottom trim - most likely exposed to dirt & muck is hammertone to match rear wheel carrier.

Gemhunter had originally suggested that they could build the roof with a slight curve. This would take away the "freezer truck" look - hopefully and also help to further strengthen the already strong panel.
Today John rang and said that he had would have to abandon those plans. It was too difficult to manage the 4x2m panel while the cutting and re-glassing was being done. Instead he thought he could locate an aluminium extrusion purpose built for pop-top roofs. It has a curved profile and will act as a frame for the roof panel. A lower section of frame will hold the top of the wall and allow for a seal between wall and roof.
