Re: Hello from Sweden
Our SA canopies were manufactured by Roamer Rand. These were some of the first canopies that the company built. They aren't particular pretty, but they are practical having vertical sides and a bit of additional height over their European equivalents. I plan on having mine refurbished in due course. The white interior while get the later style grey speckle finish used currently and I want to replace the hinges with stainless steel hardware. sort out the locking pins that screech every time you turn the handle, replace the gas struts and fit lighting in the back with a quick release connector for when the canopy has to come off. I might also fit a third LED style brake light.

I did this to mine, and did also add a work light on the back (visible in one of the photos).
I'll put some photos up of the installation if you're interested, not that my solution is the prettiest around Smile

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life
