    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Any shop used to welding light steel and sewing canvas is capable of making these, but I figure there would be more interest from an entity that is already affiliated with our interest sector. I don't want to just order them made and resell them or have to work to convince a shop to try it out...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Got a firm No from Breton last week about taking over my design. Am not able to ID any others. If anyone knows of another MilSpec canvas company, I'm all ears. Not sure if or when I will resume production otherwise. Bulldogger

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    I'm still writing potential companies to consider taking over soft slant back production but no replies so far. If there is an interested Member I'm happy to discuss as well. Last three production kits are still available in Classifieds. BDGR

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    In follow up to the previous post, if anyone has a good contact at Breton, or another military textile product supplier, I welcome it. I'd like to pass this design on to a more dedicated supplier, if I can't continue production on my own. Likewise if there is a Member here that has welding and...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    I've posted my three remaining soft slant back kits in the Classifieds for anyone who might be interested in one. At this time I do not have a planned resume date for when, or if, I will be making them again. Sales are slight, and it gets tedious after a while. I could sell them on eBay, but...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Some more in stock and more on the way. I will be pausing production due to moving home and shop end of December. If you're on the fence about buying, I am not sure when or if I will be able to restart production in 2020, no time like the present... Bulldogger

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    I have reopened for business, making soft slant back kits. Combatmp29r is first in line for a basic green ssetup. I plan to start a few tan ones as well, in spare moments. Inquiries are welcome. I plan on having no more than 3 orders in at once (nice but unlikely problem to have, turning...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    combatmp, thanks for asking. I made a slant back for slmanella, but it took a while. I'm in school now and between that and work I'm not able to accept orders. School ends, pass or fail, in 4 weeks and then I plan to hit it hard. I have tubing for 4 frames cut, needing welding of fittings...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Someone asked if I could make the center panel replaceable, meaning you can swap out a clear window for one made of opaque fabric, or perhaps buy a spare clear window to replace the first one once it finally discolors due to age and UV. Is anyone else interested in this? I think I can figure...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    Made some further edits to my plan above today. The insulation I attached with headliner glue is delaminating in my new slant back. I wondered how it would handle the damp. I will have to pull it a sew it in. Don't plan on making it standard then, as it adds considerable time to the build...

    HMMWV 4-man Soft Top Slant Back

    I worked through several possible permutations of pricing and labor today, and think I have arrived at a logically based decision. I need to make enough on these to ensure I can continue to buy materials at a decent price (i.e. in bulk) to keep costs manageable and to improve availability, so...
