I just bought a set of 10 rear troop seats, fuel tank backrests, and driver, passenger and center seat pads/backrests from Jim Clark at Allied Forces Canvas...along with a top for my M10 ammunition trailer.  If you'd posted up one day earlier I could have taken pictures for you, but unfortunately today was the last day of our pack out and I won't see my household goods for two months.
Here's a pic of the M10 top as a teaser...that tall white box in the background has the seat pads:

Hey Don,
  Yep, San Diego bound.  We’ll be there the first week of January.  Looking forward to catching up with everyone...hopefully at the new Tower Park (?) meet in April.

Ma,
  Jim’s stuff is spot on...you won’t be disappointed if you go with him.  And, no VAT if he ships outside the EU.  At least one owner on here has bought a top off of him, and he loves it.  Look him up:

Got a new old stock seal, housing and nut. I’ll post pictures and let you know how it turns out.
