Hi,

I have updated your access so you can post up some photos of what you have and there may be information or photos specifically for your Moke.

Did it feature in any of Watto's articles in Mini or BMC Experience?

Here are a couple of mine. Some have been previously posted but imageshack lost a bunch of them.

This is a postie hardtop on a standard Moke.


This is a modified Moke that has had a patch welded back in the cutout in order to be registered.


This one is the one that was 'lost' and later recovered. Unfortunately I only have these low res pictures now.






I have several pictures of this one. I think I took them off Gumtree or something


cheers

Welding a patch may be one option but so have thought a little about options for filling the walk through gap. I haven’t planned any of this yet but I have thought of, make a removable box, with captive nuts inside it, that can be bolted into the gap and have a lockable hatch, to allow storage. Bolted into place from side  the panniers and fuel tank cavity.
Then it can be remove later, if you ever wanted to show it as a Postie Moke.

However it is your Moke, so you do what is right for you.

Cheers
