I've just had a new hood fitted to my Roadster....











I also fitted some black Lexus lights to the rear (thanks Fabian) which I know aren't to everybodies taste, but I think they go well with the back hood.

The hood was done at Car Hoods Direct down in Tunbridge wells and cost me ?425 including fitting, and I am well cuffed with it.

The thought of orange mohair did cross my mind, but I'm happy I got the black hood.

Looks great. A decent hood makes a big difference.

Meant to mention it the other week. I think it was you. I saw you I think coming south bound on the A2 at Bexley Heath while I was on my way to Eltham a couple of weeks ago one day during the week.

More than likely, I work at Lee train station and often travel down the A2, Were you in a 5?

No it still requires a little persuasion to fold flat, but it's easy enough.

That looks the nutz (pardon the pun) - Mum and Dad looking to get me a shiny new roof for bday and T.Wells ain't far - based on your experience, I think we'll give them a call.

Looks awesome mate, nice one


I think an orange mohair roof (even if was possible?) would look too OTT anyway, so good call with the black IMHO.

does that mean there is a retro hood knocking about or was it beyond salvage....

new one looks great and the wheels really suit it
Sorry Gareth, but he cut the hood off the frame before I had a chance to tell him I wanted to salvage it. He fitted the hood whilst the frame was still on the car.
Certainly fits well though.

Looks really good Lance, the contrast between black and that orange works great!

I normally hate after market rear lights. I think the originals are a brilliant design.
However - that is one for the first times ill agree they work beautifully with the look of the car. Nice Job
