Help please, would a kind sole be able to measure for me the distance from the top of the rear body timber slatted sides to the underside of the metal connector to the roof hoop, I.e. how long is the timber extension that is visible, these are currently missing in my kit of parts.

We have just replaced ours and although not by the book

we made ours either 49 or 50 inches it just gave us a little more headroom and made the canvas look much better.

As a very quick job we used soft wood, but we have soom nice oak just waiting to be machined.......saw blade being sharpened.

They are called staves.


Want to know how to make them? And the size for 1.5 and 2.5 ton trucks? I'll even throw in how to make AND bend the top bows, because I'm such a nice fellow :D




I can even show you how to tell if you have WWII or post was corner brackets:




You're welcome :)
