    Bit of a long shot, but want to replace the sock in this pop-top. The conversion was done in the UK in 1972 by Weathershields Ltd of Birmingham. Would be eternally gratefull if anyone knows whether the sock is being reproed. Know it's a long shot, but ya gotta ask the question.
    Cheers
    Brad

    Maybe jump on some of the UK club forums and ask there. Someone local is bound to know!

    At then end of the day it is only a canvas (or similar) pop top and you do have the template right there...maybe have it scoped as a custom job locally? Canvas makers can work wonders with their sewing machines when they have a template to work from.
    You could also consider a less fancy straight sided alternative if the piano accordian look is mega expensive.

    Just food for thought...back to the beginning...UK resto enthusiasts!

    Any good motor trimmer worth his or her salt should be able to redo it. Check your local phone book. Cheers.
