Both types of hood may be opened at the rear to facilitate loading the vehicle.
FITTING THE SOFT HOOD.
Next select the four thin cranked tubular stays which are fitted between the windscreen and hood-sticks. The two shorter stays (D) with thumbscrews at one end should be fitted between the windscreen and front hood-stick so that the cranks throw the stays outwards; at each end the slot slips down under the thumbscrew on the bracket. Fit the longer stays (E) in a similar way between the front and rear hood-sticks and tighten the four thumbscrews (F). (Fig. 41).
Place the hood over the hood-sticks
and engage the front hood eyes (G) with the retainers on the outside of
the top windscreen rail. Loop the hood straps under the front hood-stick,
engage the hooks with the windscreen sockets (H) on the inside front of
the windscreen (Fig. 42) and tighten.

Attach the loop at one end of the rear curtain bottom rope (U) to the left-hand rear rope hook. Pass the rope round the hook on the left-hand side pocket, back under the tailboard retainers (W), round the hook on the right-hand side pocket and attach it to the right-hand rear rope hook.
Pass the rear curtain side
flaps (M) through the side pockets (T), and secure to the hood by means
of straps (Z) and buckles (BB).
FITTING THE HARD TOP.\

Provision is made for traflicators, which can either be fitted to order on a new vehicle or supplied later as extra equipment. (Fig. 46).
The operation switch, mounted on the windscreen panel, should be moved through about 450 in the direction of the proposed turn it must be returned by hand to the central "OFF" position when the turn has been completed.

A vehicle interior heater can be supplied as extra equipment; it is mounted above and to the left of the gearbox cover and controlled by a rheostat switch on the dash.
|Fig. 47. Vehicle heater.|
Two shutters on the heater casing control the direction of the warm air from the unit.
Normally the heater delivers air warmed by contact with water circulated through the heater from the engine cooling system, but the fan may also be used to supply cool air, after cutting off the water supply by means of a tap fitted in the water circuit.
