Replacement Pop top canvas

If you're the sort of perso who thinks that Westfalias are nice, you might want to pop inside.

Replacement Pop top canvas

Post by Warebus » Wed Sep 16, 2015 7:49 am

I have an SO42 with a rather grotty aftermarket turret top canvas, which i would like to replace. So having done a bit of googling I have found a few different suppliers and some very different prices! Does anyone have any recommendations please. I like the look of the Wolfsberg West ones but are they worth double the price of some the others out there?
Also my current canvas is just roughly stapled to the inside of the poptop , I'm sure thats not how Westfalia would have finished it! how should it be fitted ?

Thanks

Original has white screen. WW has black screen.

I think you'll want one of Helmut's tops at 180 EUR.
Here's his email: szydlik@volny.cz
Here's some pics of one of Helmut's pop-tops: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewto ... 74#7919274

It's hard to comment about your stapling... as there's no pic for reference.

He also does big top tents...
If you want some pictures, have a look at :

Helmut's stuff is top draw, can't big him up enough!
Attention to detail is fab and he's a real joy to deal with - great communication and service. As said contact him
