Hey Gord how about a stock look alike battery box? Also how about an air
cleaner with factory markings and a air cleaner that looks stock but
fits the Weber carbs? Later Dave the Wave

You don't need to wreck a top, or harm the car to make a glass top
for an Amphi.
We work in glass daily with the Dune Buggies
http://www.manxter2plus2.com
and you can make a glass top without hurting the car at all, and
without the top even being on the car, it can even be done without
the car around (once the form is shaped). It is a simple matter of
shaping the form and then glassing over it.
It would be VERY costly and considering its bulk and the fact that I
think about 80% of the people drive an Amphi when the sun is out it
would be a big money looser as far as marketing it (in my opinion)
but it can be done with no harm to the car or the top. If someone
wants one I'll gladly make one, but for the cost I can't imagine
anyone would ever really do it.
I could be wrong though... I thought I was wrong once before, but I
was mistaken. ;-)

You could make a a frame out of round wire like they do with the "carson top" and stretch a skin over it and then pull your mold from that.........Hey , you could cut a bit out of the windsheild frame, make your top with a couple inches chopped out of it and have a chopped Amphi .Then you could wrap the top in the stayfast material ......:) Dave stitcher Bennett

Dave,

I came up with an adapter that mounts the Amphicar air cleaner onto the
Weber carb. This adapter looks like the spark arrestor so the whole
installation looks quite stock. I think I have a photo of it in the
photos section under 1296 engine.
