    Looks really good Mark - but isn't this the time of year for a hardtop? ;)

    Thanks Dave,

    it is, but the car has had the hardtop on for a year, due to the state of my old roof!

    its now covered up in the garage on charge, but it will come out on a dry winters day.

    hopefully this week!

    Thanks Mark

    There was a red one of these available on ebay recently from a guy who buys them from BAS with minor imperfections, but he said there was nothing wrong with it. It was up for £230 and I was tempted to buy it but they are apparently a pain to fit, he wanted £450 fitted which is good for a red roof. As my roof is normally either down or the hardtop is on, I don't want to spend loads on a roof really so I think I will eventually go for one of the cheaper ones from the place in Croydon that get good reviews.

    I understand why you have gone for the best quality hood (with exception of paying a silly amount for one from the dealers), as it needs to look immaculate in keeping with the pristine condition of the rest of your car :-bd

    Thanks dave.

    You are correct, if your using the hood and hardtop a lot it's not worth spending too much
    I plan to store the hardtop now and keep the Soft top in good order.

    Very skilled and difficult job!

    I've seen the roof... It's a cheap n nasty bit of table cloth I think... It was not worth the £1150 mark payed fitted..
    Sorry mate...
