    we used these people. they make their own hoods and fit them as well.
    take a look they always have some sort of offer.
    we paid £590 fitted and had a nice day out in kingston up thames it took 4 hours for a zed roof.
    and they do all shades.

    I sent away for samples of soft top materials they all used, the best in thickness and quality I felt was BAS international
    the same as OEM, it was amazing the difference

    I am even prepared to drive to their factory to have mine fitted,
    A good excuse to have a long weekend in wales
    They said they would supply to their branch in Croydon and have recommended a fitter
