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.
