Wanted : The roof skin of the Autocar/White and Western Star cabs was the same from about 1959 until around 1992. I am chasing a new roof skin as part of our Autocar restoration.

Have tried Western Star without success

Anyone with any tips?

No idea were to get one from
A lot of this stuff can repaired quite successfully, I am fairly sure that these panels along with most others are no longer available leaving repairing the only option

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

Thanks Paul,

Looks like from the replies to this post, or lack of...repairs it will be !!!!

The roof skin we have resembles swiss cheese, with a great big hole in the middle where there used to be an airconditioner as a bonus...which we do not want in our Autocar resto.

As you say...anything can be restored...it's just how much time that you really want to spend. But Plan B it will be.

Out with the fibre glass kit and do a bit at a time which is better than none.
Cheers
