    Has been raised before on here but can't recall where - try contacting Aspro as he may have an idea or point you in a direction going forward.

    Alternatively, if the advertisement was in the UK try to contact the seller and ask them about it.

    It's commonly referred to as a 'tilt' in the Northern Hemisphere by VW guys. I have no idea how it got that name. I'm sure Australians will have their own name for it though.

    Hi, all have found the thread it is on car sales on the blue crew cab on first page. Lovely motor but just to expensive for me.

    G'day all. in the old day before fiberglass they were called a canopy. but with new solids they disappeared. some vehicles just don't suit the glass 1's the 50"s & 60's saw the intro of the metal unit. some were stylish some were shockers. A well made canvas canopy really suits the kombi. find a good trimmer who can make the bows as well. These day's there are so many choice's in colour & materials.

    you mean one of these style ute covers ?

    Mine came with the black triangle hook clips pop riveted into the car to attach the rubber stretch cord onto.Also has a piece of aluminium pop riveted along the top back section(pic 3) to slide the vinyl into first before clipping down.
    Youll need 4 bows to support the weight of the canvas when it rains.
    Mine only shows 3 bows and the water will build up and sag.
    If i was doing it from scratch id get an auto auto trimmers can make it them using the correct eyelet pieces to tie them down with that the car has around the lip of the tail gates instead of the black triangle hooks shown..

    Much prefer the original design as VW use to make them. The blue ute looks like it's in labour. Not my cup of tea.
