Re: Hardtops How much?

Ash I ran a magnet over all the lower sections and Header rail and good solid metal, no doubt it will have been repaired to some of these area's though and I can't really go stripping things down to look under rubber seals, etc! I took my car in for the M.O.T. Re-test this morning and got a pass :D ...

Re: Hardtops How much?

Yes, I know what you mean Ash, I've been fighting with my conscious since I viewed it!! :shock: The trouble is I've made up my mind I want an original one and the choices are limited unless I'm patient and get lucky. One sold recently on E-Bay (Still listed I believe) from the USA in similar conditi...

Re: Hardtops How much?

Ash It's really bad, the whole lower rear, sides and corner sections need replacing/repairing and it's a job that's well beyond my skills! I've had a quote for a professional to repair it and it's just not viable. If you add in the costs of all the new seals, headlining, Perspex windows, Etc it will...

Hardtops How much?

I've recently bought a Hardtop in very poor condition for possible refurbishment. However after making a few inquiries regarding parts and labour to restore it I'm seriously considering shelving the idea and either trying to find a decent usable one that needs minimal work or purchasing one of the H...

Re: Door Hinge Pin Replacement

It's took a long time to sort out be honest, but glad it's done and worth all the effort for the improvements in the door closing, shame about the paint chips though :oops: . I've now got the car booked in for M.o.T. on Saturday, so hopefully there will be no issues and a pass :roll: With regards to...

We had a successful Saturday Morning with the door replacement, started at 9 am and all doors fitted by lunchtime :D However it wasn't all smooth running, as we managed to chip the paint slightly at the front bottom corners and also at the top front on the curved section :( The doors are aligned as ...
