For a variety of reasons we are considering making our own jeep roofs. Does anyone out there have plans for a a1 roof? We have the canvas and a good contractor we just need a plan.

Cheers Everyone!

This will get your program started. I would not copy any canvas measurements. Any fabric guy/gal worth a salt can fabricate custom fit canvas. Every M38A1 is a wee bit different in needed top finished dimensions so the best method is custom fit. Door frames if you do not have them we have a member here that has fabricated them and has dimensions in one of the albums.
