    Last year I acquired a hardtop in yellow with the promise of a fitting kit to follow. Big problem was the rear window was broken. Now too big a project for me `as fitting kit did not materialise. So anyone want to take this on I'm `open to offers?

    Originally Blue. Wired for HRW. All door/window and screen top rubbers seals appear to me to be in very good condition. 003.jpg 004.jpg 005.jpg 006.jpg 007.jpg 008.jpg 009.jpg 010.jpg 011.jpg

    Hi Liam, I did have some, even had it sitting on my car, but phone threw a wobbler and corrupted the pics I took from this time last year up to October including both trips to Florida. But I digress I will try to get it down out of storage in my garage roof and let you see them. Might not be this weekend though?

    There are not too many yellow hardtops around, is this OEM Dakar Tony? if so it would be good if a fellow Dakar owner snapped this up.

    Have a look underneath the hardtop at the front and rear, this should give some clues to the original colour.

    If it is not OEM Dakar then I would imagine that the underneath will be a different colour unless it was re sprayed to a high standard.

    Fitting kits, they usually sell for £250 for the aftermarket up to asking £1995 on ebay.uk. I searched for about a month and bid on 6-8 and always ran out of money way before the auctions ended. Finally, hit a 6 min old auction with BIN of £99. Keep looking and if you aren't in a rush check everyday including Holland, Germany, Spain, France, etc.good luck, JIM

    Let's remember folks, this is just the instal prep kit that mount on the car and doesn't include the hardtop parts. So make sure if you're buying a top that the fittings come with it and match what you have on the car. Seems everyone has decided to separate makes more money. Our Romanian member bought a set for €100 that just sold for around £280. He was shocked when it went over £150. Shop wisely. HT how do you get the ebay auctions into the threads, cuz I Check thousands of ads everyday and see items that others are looking for. JIM
