Canopy straps and fittings
« on: April 21, 2020, 04:52:39 PM »
Can a member please post some photos of how the two canopy straps that run from the windscreen frame top, to the back of the tray over the three bows attach front and rear. I have searched the web and manual drawing but cannot see how the straps actually attach to the frame and the lip at the back of the tray.

Many thanks

At the front mine have a brass eyelet that fits over the longer Lift-the Dot Studs.
On the rear my straps have seat belt type buckles that fit over the Lift-the Dot Studs
Rear shown here.



The straps are riveted to the hood bows when they are positioned where required.

Many thanks for that, I could not find that info anywhere, so my windscreen frame should have two longer" lift the dot" studs. Have you seen the same attachment  method on other mokes ?

Hi,

on the windscreen the double height Lift-a-dot for the second one in from each side is the normal factory method.

For a nice paint job, like Might Moke, I would definitely not recommend that seat belt metal on paint bracket solution shown in Pete post, however it does allow you to easily remove the entire assembly if you want to go naked.

A Moke I recently had fitted with a new canopy came back with this set up which is a very nice solution over the two screws in the vertical part of the rear panel. On this Moke the normal mounting point interfered with the number plate trim.

I am learning more about it now that I have seen two methods. I will have to dig out the window frame and look for two longer studs. I getting this organised before I paint the whole shebang, and the blue of your moke is almost identical to what mine will be.

Thanks
Jim

Thanks for that, I had already seen it, but the drawings are really only help for dealers who have the kit in their hand with all the parts already. The photos from members have been most helpful, I guess the windshield strap attachment is similar to the rear.
