This is Sashi's workshop, near Pushpa hospital in Bedford.

Previously his workshop was at Darlington bridge.

Hello,

Thank you for the kind words. There are many more folks out here who are real passionate.

Congrats on your restoration. There is a guy in Gudalur who does the hood on Athipally road called Shani. However they do not do any frames or bars.
They also stitch and do not have the heat press. The closest place available would be Manjeri where heat press in available.

I tried two hoods, one at Gudalur and one at Coonoor. They were not good.

I finally bought the original hood with frame and door, the full set from Bombay.

Where are you restoring your Jeep?

Benny

Congrats, try posting a thread here. I am sure you will find all the help you need from the folks here.

My friend is getting a full soft top soon from Bombay. Let me know if you need one too, we can save on the transport charges.

This is the CJ340 design. A member here has it on his CJ3b.

All the best
