Neil,

Might be worth taking it off and letting one of the canvas specialists have a look at it as they might be able to repair / let a section in before it gets any worse. There are a few good ones advertising on the net. Can't imagine there are many new or good second hand canvases about but it would be nice to be proved otherwise.

Good Luck.

 

Mike.

Thanks Mike.   Thats the oveerall plan so I have a spare but might have to do that anyways.  Annoying thing is that will mean stripping off the entire front end of the load bed whilst its done but a standard tarp might be able to cover it over.  I need to replace all the tie-down ropes with synthetic so a good reason to crack on with that 🙂

Order one from the same place the MoD do. They are good to deal with.

Many thanks - just emailed them to see if they either have the details for the MJ/MK top - or better still the original sheets for a Mk 1. 🙂

Nothing yet Robin.  This is the mail sent - it may take a few days for a firm to reply to a private individual I guess.

Hi,

 

Your firm was recommended to me by a friend as being able to supply the sheets for ex-MOD vehicles.  Do you have the drawings for a Mk 1 Militant GS 6x6 roof, end and side sheets in your files?  If so what would the cost be for a full set of replacement sheets??

Failing this - can you supply an MK/MJ Roof sheet?

 

Many thanks,

 

Neil Plucknett.

He took all my Bedford parts and sheets as I have had to clear kit due to injury. I know it included two roof sheets one used with slight edge damage and one new  with a hole which can be repaired.

Good luck Mick
