Hi there. Anyone know where you can buy BLACK Mosquito netting in rolls in the UK? I need some to make up some covers for the opening windows on my Merc truck as well as the side door. Tried a Google search without success. Any leads gratefully received...........

Hi Quintin,

here you go: http://www.allplas.co.uk/

Not sure if they do black but certainly dark grey. Give them a bell if you can't find it on the site, they're helpful.

Hiya,
I use to drive on the old Yugo and eastern block run down to Izmir bout 10yr ago, an i made my mossy nets for my Volvo F89 windows an sun roof opening out of the patternless net curtains from my lounge dyed black, missus wasnt to thill to find the neighbours could see in house. Use to wind windows down at night when hot an never got bitten, tell a lie i got bit on my ass in a sleeping bag once, dont know how the little blighter got there, anyway you cud always by a cheap large damaged tent and cut the mossy doors off it and make a frame that goes round window area. hope thats any good to you.

Thanks for your suggestions. Blimey an F89; that's going back a bit...... I once drove down to Saudi in an F89 when they were regarded as the bees knees and I was too young to know any different!

all the best

Tesa

Tesa also sells packaged insect nets of different types (not sure if available in UK; though). I bought plain soft black net but seems they also make from aluminium that may be of use in car when mounted permanently.
