Can anyone recommend metal fabricators who can create custom boxes for the roof of my VDJ78 Troop Carrier

Norweld customised the interior of my canopy, with new draws and shelves to my specs-nothing off the shelf. Good attention to detail. $$. Some people may request your location.

If you were in Vic I would recommend Aussie Tool Boxes in Carrum Downs. https://www.aussietoolboxes.com.au/

If in, or near Sydney, Dave Vella from Dave’s Metal Products.

I have had two canopies made for different vehicles by Dave and his team of expert craftsmen.

Good luck with it...

If you are in Melbourne, try MW Toolboxes. They have several showrooms of which I mainly use Dandenong. I have have several custom boxes built, both chequer and plain plate, with different thicknesses. They will draw your design on CAD in front of you so you can verify the measurements and shape. Their manufacturing plant is in Audsley Rd, Clayton. Some of my boxes are awkard shapes vith various edges. eg safety edge or folded channnel edge. Their prices are good for custom made, and the quality is great. I have no affiliation with this company, only a very satisfied customer
location - Warragul -Victoria
life is too short, so out and about enjoy

x2 for MW. They are also at Lambton in the Newcastle area. They built me a custom box for my Tvan to replace the archaic frame that help gas bottles etc on my Tvan.

Troopy Life
It is personal preference of course, but I would be very cautious about having boxes up top for wind resistance and side wind catching reasons. Also any weight up there is well above the normal cruiser height anyway. Troopies being higher as it is.
I had a normal roof HJ61 Cruiser and for a while with a roof rack and not much weight in that, it altered the fuel economy and the handling quite a lot, despite having good suspension and shock absorbers.
