let’s see some DIY canopy pix boys. Weekend warrior here, not trying to pay $650-1000. So far I’m digging the $25 golf cart videos on YouTube, but open to see some creative solutions!! Thanks.

I love the golf cart idea........ I did it - work fine if NOT better than something you pay a lot of bucks for.

Justs plan it out -

Need some good "U" bolts ......
Metal if that is your choice of supports

Cutting the top to "fit" the rops is the only part that requires any "thought" - but if you are going on top of ROPS then no problems at all!

I did NOT want mine to be higher than the ROPS - cleanance issues where my problem

That install looks clean with that light bar mounted up front. Nice.

Cart roof that passes the 80MPH towing test. It is the main reason I made my own, most of the aftermarket (and OEM) kits say to remove the roof when towing. I tow all the time.

The fan is a game changer for heat and bugs.

NHS, I need to make a setup like yours! I have a nice light weight canopy that I made, but I need to remove it to trailer 7 miles to another lot that we own. Your fan and mirror set up are the cat's meow!!

I always wondered how the golf cart tops did while towing, thank you gentlemen.
