So between 3" - 4" radius.

Close enough to work with.

Thanks All.

The rear hoop mounts closer in so it looks to be different.

I only measured the middle hoop. I would think they would use the same bender for all bends?

 

Cool

Of which hoop? I had a different size for the single rear hoop.

Just checked it again. For the rear single hoop I got 4". For the front double hoops I got 3". These are with no top on, just the metal.

I checked last night and got a different measurement each time. That was after looking up how to even do it. I will try again today after a good nights sleep.

Hello fellow Mokers,

Can anyone measure the outside radius of an English Moke hood hoop for me.

I am planning out a semi-roll cage to also act as the hoops for an English Moke hood. I am designing it to resemble a standard set-up, but would like to know the outside radius to ensure the proper bending die is use to ensure a good fit with the hood.

Thanks.

Kevin
