Canvas roof for a Defender

Anyone know the best place to get a second hand canvas roof and the
fittings (ie the strip on the top of the windscreen and the
side-of-roof shapers that connect from top edges of the windscreen to
the roll bar) for a Def 90? I want to put my military roll bar on
again this summer, but don't want a mobile bath when it rains. Ebay
has not had anything for a long time....

Best thing is probably to ask on here ;-)

That's what I did when I wanted a canvas top, fittings and sticks for
my Defender 110, someone contacted me with the number of a chap who
was selling one.

Old Sodbury had a few when I was there over the weekend, but you've
missed that now.

Won't be cheap. Foleys did have some sets of the front bits off 127s
but I think I had the last full set, cost me 140. I already had the
roll hoop and rear sticks. The canvas was brand new and came off ebay
for 70. The going rate for the full set and s/h canvas is around
350. You can get new off All wheel trim or Exmoor trim but at twice
the cost.

Trawl round the ex mil dealers on www.milweb.net as they remove quite a
few sets to put hardtops on. Persevere, it's well worth it.

Blimey, cost me 75 quid about 2 years ago, including all sticks,
triangulated roll-over hoop, windscreen and door fittings, canvas and
most of the bolts and screws. I only needed to buy rope cleats, a
tailgate (5 quid, bought a 10 quid replacement at Sodbury at the
weekend) and a few bolts.

A friend bought a 110 canvas (no sticks) in far better condition than
mine for 20 quid, he's going to butcher it to make a tonneau cover for
his SWB series IIa.
