High Top conversion

High Top conversion

Postby astroconvert [OP] » January 25th 2011, 6:21am

I'm looking for a donor van to swap a high top onto my 2002 Astro Cargo conversion project.
Anyone know what model years will have a roof profile similar enough to '02 to make it fit?
Are the hi tops fiberglass or metal? Welded or riveted?

thanks,
d

Roof profile didn't change. As long as the donor has the same body length you should have no problems.
