DAF T244

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Can anyone help with a replacement top canvas sheet for my DAF T244? I cannot find one online anywhere... Can anyone also help with naming the paint colour or the closest match to some readily available online sources?

The paint colour in NATO Green BS381C shade 285. You should have no problem buying it online. Try Trade Paints, Marcus Glenn, eBay or get it mixed at your local supplier.

Thank you - that is very helpful.

What about the top canvas? Can anyone recommend a source for a replacement? eBay isn't returning much...

Apparently you can have a new one made by the original suppliers to the MOD, which I think was Comptons of Birmingham. I also need one and have contacted them on several occasions but they have never got back to me though an estimated price of £500 was mentioned.

You could try Undercover Covers, which is a trading name of Comptons 2000, although dealing more with the ex military market. They both have the same phone number and e-mail address, so it may be better to ring them than e-mail.

Thanks John, that's useful to know. I have also previously contacted Undercover Covers about my old Commer and they were very helpful.I didn't know there was a link there.
