    You could do it yourself but I think you would not be happy with the result...

    There is a guy in Swansea if you dont mind the journey who reupholsters in any style you like. He also hand makes soft tops. We used him to make a mohair roof for my partners MX5. Job was perfect and only £250 with a glass rear window.
