Homemade Land Rover Hard Top Fume Curtain

 

I spend most of my time driving in the Land Rover by myself, occasionally I have a passenger in the front seat but any in the back is a rare occurrence - the last time being July and it is now December!

Before I fitted the hard top I had toyed with the idea of a fume curtain in the soft top. My only reason for changing to "tin" was security so I never bothered but heating just the space I occupy made sense so I began thinking of ways to do it in the hard top. It was only when a duvet was donated to the truck that I came up with a simple, but as it turns out incredibly effective way, to retain heat up front.

 

I bought two M8 eye bolts and secured them in the roof strengthening rib that travels from one side of the Land Rover to the other just above the internal bulkhead behind the front seats. Between the two eyes I placed a ratchet strap and tensioned it like a clothes line. After that it was simple enough to place the duvet and appropriate duvet cover over it and tuck the bottom between the bulkhead and front seats.

I was actually shocked by the reduction in noise from the rear and the increase in heat up front. It can also be taken down in seconds by just loosening the strap for when I have rear passengers. Sadly I took the picture of it after trying it on a cold night so they are a little dull.
