I currently have a box cutaway van machine with an interior that looks like this http://truckconversion.net/photopost/showphoto.php?phot...ort=1&cat=500&page=2
and an exterior that looks like this
It's roof is solid metal and the box has no windows so it's quite dark inside with the door closed or at night. Can't see much inside. Not good.
However, with a translucent roof like this pictured here, there is so much light that it makes a huge difference.
At night, if you park under a street light, you can also see very well inside without any interior lights.
The only drawback is that you have approx 1/8" of translucent plastic between you and the outside.
So it can get hot inside during the day if the heat is not vented and is cold at night if it's really cold outside.
But that could be fixed with some kind of thermal blanket...
I really like the translucent roofs or something similar that lets in a lot of light.
Hoping to change my box trucks roof from solid metal to translucent. I got one or two quotes at $1,500, but that seems like a lot of money.
Any suggestions for my truck to let in more light?
Anybody know of anyone in the San Francisco area that could replace the roof for less?
Anyone like the translucent roof idea?
