Tonou covers

Hi all,
I'm looking for a tonou cover for my striker.
Anyone have recommendations for purpose made or where I can by the material and make one myself?

Thanks

Woolies sell all the stuff you'll need.

I bought double-duck fabric and Tenex fasteners. Then I taped a piece of curtain material over the cockpit and marked around the outline that I wanted. Then I took that as a pattern to a local upholsterer and he made up a tonneau complete with centre zip. I added the fasteners after.

MK ( new raw owners) will probably sell you one, or use the suppliers mentioned and have a crack yourself, or I can make you one.

I use thick 500g clear plastic sheet as a template and Mark it up / cut with a Sharpie. Make it a tiny bit short on outside dims and let the material stretch for a nice tight finish.

If it's a striker and you don't have doors then the sides might be tough to work out, but that's where the cheap plastic template comes in.
