Default Looking info on Pat 13 Canvas Doors

Hi All


Someone over on HMVF is looking for Ford Pattern 13 doors. I replied:

Hi
Looking for Pat 13 CMPs can be like looking for the Holy Grail, or you may get luck and find some looking for a home.
Have you considered using canvas doors as used on some of the Australian CMPs as an replacement, paint the truck sand color and get on to driving and enjoying. Also as soon as you have the canvas doors on somebody is going to come up to you and say "I've got a couple doors for that kicking around the shop, want come get them"
There are some photos and information over on http://www.mapleleafup.net/forums/.
Strangely you may actually have more problems finding the hinges in usable condition.
Cheers Phil
Well thought I'd search MLU and post a web search over to them but I've tried now for a half an hour and I'm not finding the correct treads. Does anybody remember where, when, who?

Cheers Phil

Hi Rich

Yes, I'd found that thread but thanks for sharing it. My mind says that at some point someone has posted some detail photos of the canvas and how it attached to the simple steel frame. Also had some photos of the simple hinge and latch used.

Always seemed like a good solution to getting a CMP on the road if it is lacking doors. If can find the threads want to list them and link them to make them easier to find.

Thanks again for helping search.

Cheers Phil
