21C Jeep Canopy Frames

I was commissioned by a fellow member here jackntbox to make him a couple sets of the canopy frames like I made for my 21C jeep. I figured I would share with the members how I made them in pictures. I will add more pics as they progress

Here are the rear brackets assembled and painted. The frames are now ready to ship and install.

Great stuff! I have to do a similar thing for my Kubelwagons I never thought of the US Jeep though they look great did you ever post you Jeep top? I did a search but too much stuff came up but not what I was looking for.

My local hobby shop has really slacked off on ordering K&S I was told there would be an order last week but when I went by there yesterday they hadn't got anything in.

I have a Hasbro Jeep with cloth top but I don't know how it would work with the other Jeeps out there. I want to make a patten from it as well as my Kube top I can post so the guys who want full cloth tops can just download the patterns and make them for themselves. I really don't want to split the seams on the ones I have but it might be necessary to make a decent pattern.
