Hello all, I'm planning a couple of VN projects using M151a1s and I have 2 soft tops. The one is from the Tamiya with the 2 window back. The other is from the A2 kit with the big single window. Can anyone tell me when they started using the single window top? As far as I can remember we only had the 2 window tops in VN in 71-72. If anyone has a spare 2 window top I would be interested if you aren't going to use it. Thanks for your time, Wayne

The single rear window was an M151A2 feature.

Thanks Gino, that's what I was thinking, but with a lot of restored ones pictured with it I just wanted to be sure. Wayne

I may have a spare M151A1 2-window soft top as well. I'll look tonight and let you know.
