Hi Steve,

Not to my knowledge, there was only one part number for the rear cab curtain. rear curtains did show up surplus with a window.

I used to send Mike Sinkovic rear curtains to have the window addad.
Kinda strange why the CCKW canvas had no rear window, ain't it?

Thanks for the reply. I kind of liken it to driving a British car in the UK: You go to look in the rear view mirror and discover that you are looking at the door frame beside you.

I think I will have one added to Pat

I miss Pat, he is a legend who was at home behind the controls of a CCKW, Half Track and a B-17.

Is there a source for a rear cab canvas?

Does anyone have one laided out that they could snap some photos of with a ruler for ref!

We have a top, two rough doors and need a rear piece made. So were planning on taking plans and our pieces and get all new made form the local boat shop, unless someone has a better idea?

Thanks

There are NOS Surplus scattered around, any that I have encountered over the past 40 years have shrunk and do not fit well. I have a couple NOS that I can get to in the spring.

Anyone have measurements or a diagram that I can get one made when we do our doors!

We have a top that's in OK shape and both doors that need to have new canvas and then the rear needs to be made! We figure we will get them all made at a local Boat shop!

Might have on in the spring, but trying to keep the door open in case it does no work out!

Thanks for the help

Hi Rick,
why bother with trying to get one made by a boat company, when you can get one from me.

At the moment (18 Feb 2019) the our GMC cab canvas (2 parts ) is £220-00 plus shipping.

Doors are £225-00 a pair, ready to fit with all hinges and handles

Cheers Jim.
