This is a side sun canopy set in the same material as the pickup canvas. It fits cleverly into the original eyelets. All fittings are enclosed including locking strap for eyelet, 2 upright canopy poles, guy ropes and pegs.
Heavy Duty waterproof cotton side matching sun canopy fits original Steel-Hooped pick up canvas cover for VW T2 Split Crew /Double Cab from 1950-1967. We have reproduced this canvas to the same spec as the original canvas including colour, style, size, weight and waterproofing. We have also reproduced all the small fittings including rectangular eyelets (in brass & aluminium), lock loops and straps.
This canvas has been reproduced exactly according to the specifications of the original VW canvas. It is identical in colour, style, size, weight and waterproofing.
All small details are identical in shape and material to the original ones, rectangular eyelets (aluminium and brass), loops, hooks.
The waterproof resistant cotton fabric is perfect for use with the original steel hoops or our reproduction ones, ref C9576 and C9576F.
This canvas canopy is designed for original drop gates and canvas.
CAUTION: some reproduction drop gates do not have the hooks in the right place (e.g. Klassic Fab).
Care instructions for correct use of Pick-Up Canvas.
Please read this before unpacking and fitting your new Pick Up Canvas canopy.
We have tried our best to make our reproduction the same grade cotton canvas as the originals with a high index waterproof layer on the inside, water-splashing-proof on the outside and also with pre-shrinking treatment to standardize the shape of the canvas. However, due to the nature of cotton canvas, if you decide to use your pick up with the canvas on under all weathers, we suggest that you apply some waterproof spray on the outside of your canvas while it is completely dry and also keep all the eyelets on all sides of the canvas securely attached onto all metal hoops on all drop gates as long as possible while using the canvas on your Pick Up for the first few months to allow it to settle down, especially when it is raining or in moist conditions, as VW would have recommended with their original canvases initially. You may repeat applying waterproof spray as required.
When you take the canvas off your Pick Up and store it, please make sure it is completely dry, fold it carefully into the original carry bag and put it into a sealed plastic bag for indoor storage.
