    I can't believe it cracked today was a warm day (relatively) and I was waiting for a suitable day to open it - best get the gaffer tape out in the mean time marvellous, just in time for the meet
    just check that if it is sitched you are happy and that the rubber seal is put back in place, i have seen a couple of jobs which are not to geat, ask them before you go ahead if you can see some off there work

    good luck and hopefully i,ll see you at the meet

    Now that's got to be worth seeing once, on someone else's car

    It sounds like you've experienced it ?

    The guy who did mine has been doing roofs for years. He really new his stuff and explained what he was doing, And even told me what other people do wrong.

    Thanks for the tips - I'll defo be at the meet (even though Liverpool are playing Chelsea - I want to see Torres fall flat on his face Yes I'm a wolves fan with an affinity for the reds ).

    I spoke to the guys today and the best thing about this service is he reckons it will take about 2-3hours and he will drop me into Coventry near the transport museum so I dont have to wait around the unit - now that is added value IMO

    Mine was split due to the roll over bars popping up when i over shot a power slide and mounted the kerb, Had the hard top on after that, But dropped it off at christmas to lube the mechanism and as i put the roof up, it just shattered into little pieces.

    Just to square the circle, I had the screen done yesterday and I am really pleased with the job - I can actually see out the back of the car now

    Tony was great and I didn't even have to wait around for the job to be done as he dropped me off at the Transport museum and picked me up when he was done - top man

    If anyone needs a screen or roof repair done I can wholeheartedly recommend this chap
