Will the kit product be as good as if I bought my ute into the workshop and the frame and canopy was made on site.
Every kit that we have developed was originally made as a frame and canopy on site with the ute in front of us. This was done not once but many times over, over many years, to ensure every detail is correct. As a result the kit you will receive will be made exactly the same as if we had your ute in front of us.
Every time a new model is released we source the vehicle, manufacture the product and test it until we are happy that meets the required standard. Only then will the product be released to market. If we are not happy that is doesn’t meet this standard we won’t offer it.
Will I be able to assemble and fit the kit to achieve the same result as the pictures shown on the website?
Each canopy kit has detailed step by step instructions on how to fit the kit. The photos shown on our website were sent in by customers who fitted the kit themselves. Most of these customers have no trade knowledge whatsoever. We have deliberately done this to show that, using the instructions provided, you can fit the kit with a professional outcome even if you don’t have trade experience. Only basic tools are required to assemble and fit the kit.
Tray Kit : A cordless drill, 4mm and 10mm drill bit, 17mm and adjustable spanner, Allen Key set, pop rivet gun, tape measure, marker
Tub Kit: A cordless drill, 10mm drill bit, 17mm spanner. Allen key set
