windshield rod

Postby buddyrot » Sun Jun 19, 2011 10:07 am

My mark II sprite came without a top. Just the two piece top frame and some side curtains that will need some work. The side curtains I can deal with but I have never installed a top.I ordered one from Moss and it looks great but there is the matter of the windshield rod which appears to be unavailable. This should be something that even I can make if I knew the length, diameter and material. Can anyone help with this information?

Hi, should be a piece of flat iron , 10 mm x 2,5-3 mm, with rounded ends, length is a little bit shorter as the" pocket" where you stick it in. and it should be mildly curved.

Hope you understand my " school english " from a hundred years back. :oops:
