I did think about it just clipping on and off but this would mean the boot would not open with out the roof being lifted off and I didnt wontvthis and im sure other wouldnt would be so much easyer tho.


Yes I forgot youall have half doors. I have fitted a few roofs to vans, Transit and Sherpa, which were unlined though may have been double skinned, I just cannot remember, but they got lined with cheap carpet and Evo Stick lol.

I am sure that if a kit was offered peeps would do the hard yards themselves especially with this lot who lurv fettling almost as much as me!

Do it right - use Hammerite

think how hard a boat hits the waves answer extremely hard this isn't as think about a 3rd but you could throw a rock at it, be ten times stronger than the soft top, I need to go thinker on the other ones this was a test run at the thinnest I could of gone and its iver going to need a couple more layers or the better option it to put some ribs in it only just come out the mould and will harden bit bit over the next few days and once fitted will be solid just need it to go up and down with out flexing and it only weights about 5kg so nice and light
