    Hello peeps!

    I was just wondering

    (1) if anyone knows which canvas to buy if making my own pop top for me Kombi? I’ll use the old one for a template!

    (2) if anyone could make it for me?

    I’ve been quotes $800 for an new one and $1600 installed!!!

    Many thanks,

    Jako

    Those quotes actually seem very reasonable to me. Depends though on how detailed you want it (i.e. windows etc). Volkstrim in VIC seems to do a heap of these. Might be worthwhile giving him a call.

    I am in the process of making new canvas for mine. I bought the canvas from "Foamland" here in Hobart, most major cities have something similar. Like you mentioned I have used the old one as a template but! when it came to sewing the zippers in the windows I have realised my sewing ability is not what I thought it should be. I have contacted a local canvas sewer and I am having the window zips and screens installed then I will sew all four sides together and refit the canvas. There was someone on here advertising replacement pop top canvas but I had no luck contacting them.
