I have this brand new / still in the box canopy I took in trade for labor. It was built for a Starduster but I'm certain it also fits an Acroduster and possibly others such as maybe... a Skybolt?? I have no idea but I need it out of my hangar. I believe $350 is a fair price but if a call to Todds (to confirm it will fit your project) indicates something different just let me know.

It has what I would call a light smoke gray tint and has never even been unwrapped. Still in the original shipping box and ready to go. The abrasion to the saran wrap you see in the photo did not reach through to the Plexiglas. Buyer needs to coordinate and pay for shipping.

I am very interested. Not for my Acroduster at this time but I've been looking for something to adapt to my Tu-holer.

Could you please give me measurements, length, height and width? Also where you are located.

I hope I can make it work. Indeed I should probable just grab it for the Duster.......just in case.

Thanks,

Jack

Might check and see if it has molded aft edge to fit Starduster Too turtle deck...if it does it won't work on a stock style Acroduster Too. Just something I thought of you may want to look into.

If it is NOT molded for the SD, I'm interested. Even if it is I'm still interested as it still may fit my Tu-holer. Depends on length. Indeed the tu-holer has a SD type turtledeck so it should work for me either way!

If it is long enough, I'll take it. I'll PM my phone number.

I've been looking for something that I can make work w/o paying custom price for a couple years.

Thanks,

Jack

It is not molded in the rear but was definitely built for a Starduster. That is curious. It will fit the Acroduster (which is why I took it in trade but somehow managed to not screw up the one I had when doing my installation) it just needs to be cut down in the rear.

Jack, I'll call you in a couple of hours at which point I should have dimensions for you. I'm located in San Diego.
