    Hi everyone. I’m thinking about putting my 110 hard too back to a full soft top. I’ve got a problem though. I sold all my frames, roll bar etc. I’ve been keeping an eye on eBay but nothing really comes up. Safety devices do a pretty cool looking full frame kit but it’s expensive. Can anyone recommend any supplier that can supply everything I need at a decent price?

    It depend what you class as a decent price, other than scouring ebay and the auto jumbles which are still expensive no one does anything softop related for what I would consider a reasonable price.

    Price up a full kit at All Wheel Trim and then see how secondhand prices compare.
    Then you can see how the combined roll-bar / hoodstick cost in.

    Picked up an old stock brand new green canvas roof still in its packet. Also picked up this heavy duty frame from a fabricator. Seems very well made and thick. Im just waiting on a header rail now and will hopefully all be fitted in a few weeks.

    Frame, tailgate and soft top fitted. I’m impressed with the frame. It’s very sturdy

    Perfect weather for a soft top lol. Who fits one in the winter lol. Also just ordered a bikini top again for it. Exmoor have them listed on eBay at a reduced price if anyone is interested.

    I think if I was to get another bikini roof, I would get one of the longer ones, as at speed the std length one I find allows some of that nice summer shower rain to blow back in and go right down your neck.

    Cheers
