Have you tightened the nuts which hold the bayonet handles into the roof body?
Add a bit of oil to the bayonets as well.

How about taking it off? I'm sure that will cure it, after all it is a roadster and not a wannabe coupe :banghead::D

Sorry for not answering your specific question Miller. Perhaps you and Mike have both got mice in there. It sounds as though Mike's are also wearing clogs :shock:
There are side vents in the hood which get progressively noisier as speed increases and Im wondering whether there is maybe some part of this fabric which is "rippling" perhaps?

I'm wondering if this kinky latex pant wearing mouse is in fact the start of top mount failure in disguise ?
