cab roof

I have a 1412 with a Sekura cab and the roof is well shot, question is will a Ford AP roof fit (new ones are available with or without hatch).

Try asking the company that sells the Ford AP roofs. They might already know if they fit other cabs. Other option is to run a tape measure over it.

yes cobbadog that might be next move, I could get get some steel sheet and make a new roof but may be more hassle than it's worth. I did make a pair of mudguard's but you would be surprised how hard it is to bend 2.5mm steel sheet.
thank's for the reply

If looks are not important knock up a lightweight angle iron frame and lay the sheet metal over that and use a product similar to Silastik or a Mastik product that seals very well and remains flexible so the seal wont break.
