Question SWB SIII (Lightweight) Canvas hood suppliers?

Hi,

Wondering if anyone knows a supplier of canvas hoods in Australia, that and 'replica' quality, no mods etc apart from side windows added. I need one 'perfect' to military specs - webbing straps, brass buckles etc - except for the addition of side windows.

Also, what do people know of the truth of the rumours that a standard SIII canvas is slightly longer in the height of the side flaps than a Lightweight one?

Cheers,

Dave

Thumbs up Thanks!

I'm going to try one from British 4WD Imports. They have SIII ones made locally, with (claimed) correct fittings etc. I'll post some pics.
Exmoor Trim are also distributed done by them, and Karcraft (karkraft?). But they are +$800 so out of my price range at the moment.
One from Exmoor trim in UK was going to cost £210 POSTAGE, so I dropped that idea too
Thanks for advice!

Cheers,

Dave

There is a guy in Tooradin Victoria who makes them I think his name is Ian and his number 59971800. He made a canvas top for me a few months ago but I havent fitted it yet.

A friend recently got a series 1 tilt from All Wheel Trim and the delivered cost was about half any Aust cost. I would assume any locally made one will be very expensive.
