    Oertel,

    As jy BAAAIIIIEEEEE mooi kyk sal jy sien daar is inelke hoek net een rivet. Ek het geplak met poly urethane, soos sikaflex, maar imho, sterker, en 'n lekker grys kleur.....

    Die rivets was net om die spulletjie bymekaar te hou tot die "gom" droog was....

    Ja, dit is staal, 1.6mm wand dikte.

    Nie baie swaarder as die alu nie, maar werk soveel makliker. IMHO - Sterker

    The steel frame looks like a great idea! Very neat, strong and can be welded by the common folk. I'm a bit PO'd with myself for buying one now

    Wow! super impressed!

    In post 31 image 1, it looks like you used angle iron in the bottom( the part that fastens to the top edge of the bak). What size of angle is it or was it just to protect the bak while welding.

    On post 47 it looks looked you used angle for the cross pieces of the roof. Again please what size?

    HI,

    Eish, on Tapatalk now, but.....

    I used 40x40 2mm cold rolled bent for me....

    On the roof cross section I used normal 25x25x3

    Reason for angle in the roof is to be able to easily bolt things to it without welding and damaging the powder coat

    Thanks for the reply.

    Is there any reason that the cold rolled overlaps the side of the bak?
    (on the outside of the canopy frame work at the bottom of the framework and going down the outside of the top of the side of the bak)

    Hope this makes sense.

    Hi,

    I like your canopy.
    What are the sizes of the Windows? How many mm less than the canopy?
    Did you install a RTT on it?
