Hawk Tonneau cover?

Post by KevinW » Fri Mar 29, 2019 7:18 am

I am hoping to take the Crendon to Stoneleigh, assuming i can fix the minor oil leak and extract a few more mpg out of the carb. However, I'd like to have a tonneau fitted before venturing too far from home. I can't find a trimmer so far that has templates for a Crendon so I was wondering if anyone would be so kind as to make some measurements to see if a Hawk tonneau might fit.

Measurements I am seeking:
Width at widest point
Length along centre zip
Distance from front of tonneau to steering wheel 'hood'

The old price list on the Hawk website suggests there are 2 variants (with and without roll hoop). I am wondering if one of these is a shortie that stops in front of the roll hoop? Realise this might be a long shot. Are these supplied from Hawk or via a 3rd party trimmer?

I would expect that the ‘without roll bar’ version is the same dimensions but merely without the bump to go over the rollover bar.
I can measure mine but have no idea how a Hawk compares to a Credon.

Thanks Peter - realise its a long shot.
When you say 'bump' is that the type of tonneau with a full hoodie that goes over the roll bar?

Kevin,
Yes the hood or bump section that goes over the roll bar and it’s front brace.
The dimensions as follows.
O/A Front to back - 1280
Length of zip - 930
Dimension from front of steering wheel hood to front edge - 145 with the hood then being 45 x 395. Note dimension varies due to front curve but dim taken from the middle straight edge portion at the front.
Max width - 1410 measured at 775 from the front which is approx level with rear of the doors.

Personally I would have preferred if the zip was full length so you can completely remove the drivers section and leave the passenger section in place.
Tonneau made by Hawk’s recommended Polyfacto but I don’t think they are trading anymore.
Hope that helps.

Thanks Peter, I'll see ho those measure up as a starting point.
I think Monsoon bought Polyfacto, but I noticed they do not seem to list cobras on their list of cars anymore.
