 sun protection on a CUT with a canopy

Okay. I decided on the Firebird canopy for my TC33D. Cost $475 delivered. Looks really nice--the rear of the canopy rides up and over the rollbar giving it the look of a spoiler.

What I think I'm looking for now is to extend or broaden the width along the sides and rear to add more protection rom more than just high-sun. Anybody seen anything like this? I know there is a fine, sun-blocking mesh out there that could be stretched on a frame, but I was hoping someone beat me to the market and already makes these.

Peters: Are you the same guy that suggested I use plywood for a canopy? But I'll take this idea under advisement----Nnnnot!

Man you want me to be serious!!! Thats no fun!!!!

I have never seen an extension like you discribe, but there is sun screen material is available that has some rigidity. The two suppliers I know of are Ten Cate Baycor and Twitchell. I have books some place for both I will see if I can find them tomorrow and determine which fabric would be appropriate.

In your previous post you indicated that you wanted a hard top. Back on the farm years ago we had tractor umbrellas. TSC still sells both kinds. Ours was Red and said IHC on it. It's 50 years old and still in the barn. You can articulate them into the proper position to block the sun and gives some protection in light rain. You can lower it down so you are right under it giving you protection til sunset.

They are easy to remove which is important. On cool, cloudy days with a hard top you will be cold!!

 sun protection on a CUT with a canopy

Yooper: I do a lot of grading where I have to make multiple circling or figure 8's in the process, so I'm not sure the umbrella would be practical An umbrella is fine for farming or around the house. Alos, I sometimes have sevral jobs to go to in one day so being that mobile I need somthing I can traler quickly without worry of being like Mary Poppins. And a quality canopy gives a professional image IMHO when someone's paying $75 an hour for my services, because the first thing a customer says to me is "oooowe---I gotta have one of those (tractor) until I tell 'em that for $20,000 they too can have one. That makes a $300-$1000 job I just did for them look like chump change.

 sun protection on a CUT with a canopy

earthworks,

I am offended that you gave the credit to Peters on the plywood top. I worked hard to come up with that. Sadly it was not my idea. Saw it on a Michiagan tractor!!!! headed to Miss.

Now, plywood you thought might be tacky, so you buy a high price top when price was your first concern and now want to put curtains on it. Really, are you a tractor driver or an Interior Decorator?

There is a sun screen material used for dog pens you might could use but it would have to be cut to size and hemmed so it does not ravel. There is also sunblock window screen material you could use. Something I find nice is a fan blowing down on you. You should be able to mount it so rain is not an issue.

Now back to the plywood, you could just staple either of these to the plywood, but you will need to use the snaps for boat tops with your fancy top. Laughing out loud

 sun protection on a CUT with a canopy

KT: With all your talk about fabric, sizing, hemming, etc. it sounds like you are really in touch with your feminine side. Good for you! I'm glad this board has been life-changing fer ya'll (is that how they say it SC?). We here at TP except you for who you are (notice I didn't say "accept"Wink yeah right ah-hahhahaha

By the way that Michiganian on his way to Mississippi with the plywood canopy...I happen to talk to him (he said to tell you hello---or in SC-speak "wanna beer?"Wink yeah right; he told me to tell you that your modesty is showing (and you thought that was something else) 'cause you gave him the inspiration one rainy night when he saw you on the way back from the bar...err..."waterin' hole" (did I say that right?) riding through town on your 2wd Kuboaty with a cardboard yard sale sign shielding your head ---(something about how to get around getting another DUI). He wasn't clear about whether the cardboard to was to hide your face from the Law, protect your family from another "mom----dad's doing IT again" embarassment, or what. Do you wanna set the record "straight"---oops----gotta be Politically Correct---- I didn't mean to use the term in mixed company. My bad. tehehehehe

(Gawd---this is a riot!---it's all fun and games until someone puts an eye out!)
