    As Liz eludes to, no hardtop option with the Cabrio from the factory. I wonder if either of the home builds ere left with fibreglass moulds or templates/drawings of any sort?

    Yes, I too wonder how many Cabrio owners would be interested in a hard top? I know I would. Now whether or not I'd be prepared to go through the pain of making my own is another topic.

    Marlin did produce a factory hard top This was supplied with a heated rear window. Quite a high leading edge ( higher than the top of the screen surround to give some head height. This was dropped after just a few sold.

    I think there would be quite a few cabrio owners that would be interested in a hard top especially eith the British weather getting worse every year. I myself wouldn't go through the headache of making my own.
