UK MoD Canvas

Post by fesm_ndt »

Is the canvas from Austria or is there a local supplier?

One of the Landrover shops said they did it but I could never get a price

Local to who? :lol:
I went the route to make my own... sort of like folding paper airplanes.... only bigger, and uses glue. :D

G'Day Dave

I am over in the UK and wondered who made their canvas but thus far cannot find a supplier.

Will most likely get in done back in KL but, it's been nagging on me as one of the major bits I don't have a fixed price on. I have all the aircon pieces so, I can either:

- cut the 6x6 canvas shorter and put the 4x4 bit on the back
- try and get a canvas shop to make the lot but I am guessing all the fittings I will do myself

I thought about making it all but even getting decent canvas in KL is a pain

:shock: this trip to UK is going to bankrupt me (not you) but had a few things come up for sale this week, (found my aircon compressor nearby in Clopton 'not cheap' at 275 quid, but was quoted 1800 Euro from Austria).

I am in exams today, but was going to see if your in next weekend (28th) as I am travelling back from Middlesbrough, via Withams to Cambridge. As would be good to compare a UK P93 to my P90 with lots of P93 bits.

I'll have to see if I can get the glue as whichever route I go I have to cut a hole in it for the aircon. I think there is a padded flange there and an extra bit the pipes go through.
