I have been following this thread off & on. It seems like a brilliant piece of work, being seriously pursued with the conclusion in sight.

Kudos to the team involved & thanks for the great updates

Looking forward to the finished product as also the WIP updates.



Cheers

A folding hardtop?! Why go through all that pain? It will be very challenging to implement. Why not a simple fabric top?

Well because we like challenges on our plate and personally i like the hartops better looking. but we arent promising on the folding top yet. lets see what time and effort has for us.

All this is a result of what Nigel is capable of. i have known him for years but he still surprises me.

I hope this project really comes out well.
Keep the Contessa's GLX bumpers and steering wheel safely. Conti parts are not so easy to get. Someone might need them.
