    Default Canvas canopy recommendation

    Hi Guys

    Im not one to rant and rave about service and good value for money but this was just to good not to pass on, i took my old canvas canopy in to modify the frame so that you can lock it and also for a colour change. got a quote from jacil canvas in hekpoort for R1000 for the frame mod and R3300 for a new canvas.

    when i went to pick it up the guys from jacil had a surprise installed for me they built me an entire new frame as the old one was not up to their standard for the same price ... free , mahala !

    so i basically got a brand new canvas canopy and complete new frame, lockable with gas lifts at the rear for R4300 !!! I think its a bargain and excellent service. taking into account all the extra steel that went into the frame to make it secure from the sides and the rear.... its more like a cattle rail. and now that i have the old frame i can sell the old canopy so its actually costing me less than R4300.

    this is the 2nd canvas canopy ive done through them, the first was for my old hilux, i can also vouch for the quality of their products as i know that canopy is still going strong today (gave the bakkie to my dad)

    so if youre looking for a canvas canopy/tent/awning etc you know who to contact
