    Question Canopy Fitment Advice

    I am buying a used canopy for my Colt D/Cab. Is there anything difficult about fitting a canopy? Can I do it myself with some basic tools or should I take it to a canopy fitment centre? Cost will be around R900 for them to fit.

    I've not picked it up yet but I believe that it bolts into the 'bak'

    You may just need to drill a few holes on the lip of the "bak" to fit the bolts through.

    On the Triton the bak does not have the lip anymore so I've seen that canopies can cause some paint damage on the tailgate, but on the Colt I reckon its a non issue.

    A fitment centre may do some dust proofing for what its worth...

    Also if you ever want to remove the canopy you'll have to fit it again - so I reckon try it yourself first before forking out the R900...

    BTW I was qouted R3000 for the toneu cover including fitment on my Triton. I bought the cover with all the fittings for R1500 and fitted it myself in 15min - R1500 saved for nothing...
