Re: Hardtops How much?

Hi Gary,I would have thought for a very good hardtop,no rot,very minimal filler if it’s had metal work done,all seals present,good Perspex and decent paint it would be £1k at least,maybe a bit more.any hardtop that has had repairs I would want to try it on my car to check out fit.regds
