Aluminium: try Metals Centre

If you want to buy already laser cut and bent sheet, talk to General Profiling. But they will need drawings.

For and all the fittings for the cab like the locks, the rubbers, the sliders, the rails, ect.go to Walter McNaughtans in Alberton. Register and Download their catalogue, you will find things in there that you did not even know that you needed or did not know they even existed!!

If you contact them, or go there, speak to a guy called Sergeant. HE IS ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT, knows all the products and when it comes to the bonnet and boot stay shocks, nobody has half the knowhow he has.

Best of luck with your build....
