Hi Peter,
Id expect between $1600 to $2200 for a full hood.
Extra details will add to this as well.
Mine was made in Melbourne, so I dont know of any Adelaide Trimmers. Maybe contact the SA Moke club for a bit of advice. Im sure there would be some good Upholsterers there.
Cheers

Hi Pete, no idea of pricing but Adelaide Annexe & Canvas might be able to help. I have had them do repairs and replace zippers on mine. They do quality work. Let them know Pete at Flight Bros referred you.(hopefully they don't charge you double :) )

Thanks for that Pete.
Flight Bros.?
That takes me back about 50 years I reckon. Can't remember what they manufactured now but they were in the Edwardstown area or thereabouts I reckon?

You are correct Pete and still in Edwardstown, and now over 114+years old. It was probably the Over Centre Quick Action Clamps you were familiar with??
