  • DIY Bimini Top for 2002 VLX

    • Year: 2002 Brand: Malibu Model / Trim: VLX Cost: (unspecified) DIY or Professional Install: I installed it

    The orange bimini that was on it was in the way if you wanted to add tower speakers.   I had a free weekend and thought I'd try to see if I could make a new Bimini top before the new owner picked up the boat. 


     was able to reuse the stainless bars.   I changed up the mounting location of the bimini bars to make the over-the-top bimini work.   I used some strapping tape to hold the bars in the new position and used plastic to make a new pattern.





    • I have never tried to make a bimini, but it came out better than I had expected.  I made it about a foot longer than before.  You can never have enough shade in Arizona.
