Default Convert Defender 90 pickup to hardtop

After week after week of trawling through car ad sites, i've finally come across a defender 90 that i like!! Only problem is, it is curently a pickup, and i want a hard top.

SO I'VE COME TO YOU GUYS FOR HELP!!!

What panels do i need to find to convert it?

Any ideas how i do it?

Any idea's where i can get the parts at a decent price?

and last of all, does anyone have any idea how much it would most likely cost?

Thanks in advance guys.......

I am in the same situation, i've got a truck cab with perfect headlining and a nice tonneau cover with internal fitted struts.

I've got a local landrover independent involved as they say they often get people in who want truck cabs!

Is it the chequer plate cover on the photo, if so I would be interested in buying the cover if its going spare.
Provided of course the price is right and you are not a million miles away.
Let me now if your interested.

Mark

Yes it is Chequer plate, I also have some struts fitted inside the rear of the tub and runners on the underside of the cover so it lifts like a "boot" almost.

I am in North Devon.
