Do you mean these people http://www.hoodsgaloreuk.co.uk/?

Not heard of them personally. Is it just the rear screen you are looking at changing, in which case you could by a OEM original and fit it yourself. It's a bit fiddly and needs two pairs of hands, but it's been done by many already.

As Gary has said this is doable from a DIY point of view and I have indeed done it myself, if you want to check out the link below I did a little writeup which may influence your decision as the whether or not to do it yourself or not. ;)

That's the one that has a cloth overlapping bead rather then a plastic one which I am not sure about tbh. Might be ok but like me you may have to suck it and see.

I did mine in Croydon. They charged me 150 pounds for two hour job.

A very nice job!

Cant remember website address but you should be able to google.

Thats it! soft tops. I paid back in 2006 for £125.00 still mine is good condition so worth giving him a call.

Did they fit a completely new part or did they re-use your old zipper and 'U' channel by stitching a new plastic window section into it before zipping back in?

Mine needs doing but I want a new 'U' channel as mine is all scuffed and dull.
