Picked up this old Mule about a year ago and slowly brought it back to life.
It had the small plastic factory roof on it but was pretty small.
I had built a similar roof for my first Mule so I had thought this one thru a little better.
I welded tabs on front and rear of overhead cage and attached a piece of 48" x 58" 3/4 exterior form grade plywood that was painted with OD green porch paint.
The perimeter frame is welded 1-1/4" angle iron 1/8" thick with pockets in each corner for blind use with 1/2" pipe rails painted semigloss black.
I added a small 20w motorcycle FM/USB/SD head unit and pair of 5-1/4" waterproof boat speakers to finish it out.
Yeah, the white tie wraps are killing me and will be changed to black when social distancing is over!

Put some yotes or pig squeals through the sound system. Got it covered.
