A couple of pictures of what we have accomplished so far. My lovely wife early on. She really got behind this project when I agreed to include a falling bow top. Made the frame myself, and had a local upholsterer install the fabric. Squirrel, I contacted an Amish business that is not on the internet, catalog sales only, limited pictures of items, and asked the fine gentleman what I needed to complete this buggy top on this particular project. He told me what I needed and I ordered the parts. I got to looking at pictures of tops and ordered extra brackets that I thought would look good on this top. What do the Amish know, I know better. When I completed the top, I immediately realized that He was a little bit smarter than I was. So, fortunately, I had the original parts to complete this, and did so. Had a local upholsterer do the top ($1200 total). Pictures of this project so far.

Very cool project you have going on. Lots of history there to just sit and imagine the old days. You should be very proud of yourself. Thanks for the ride.

Your doing an amazing job. What branding do you have planned? (Forgive me if you've mentioned it) Did you bend the wood for the bow top? How many horses do you guys have? How many -and what type- will be pulling you guys around? Thanks so much for taking the time to let all of us in on this labor of love. So cool your whole family is involved.
