Hi All,

Have managed to work out how to post images with the help of Bladerunner919..... :thumb:
and it also helped when I discovered that using the right USB cable would be beneficial......Doh!........ :head:


So here's before and after photo's would highly recommend this guy http://www.soft-tops.co.uk

Before:

And After:

Really pleased with the end result......
and thanks again to all those who recommended the guy to me....

You've made me go all misty eyed, I remember getting my new top fitted by Soft-Tops, first class job. 5 years later and OK, it's not looking quite as pristine, but weathering very well! :thumb:

Glad to see he's lost the two rows of stitching going across the roof (as on mine), I've got a blue roof and the stitching has bleached to almost white so can look a bit weird!

Great guy who does a great job, you can't go wrong really even though his price has crept up a bit recently but he is still cheaper than most. My latest zed is booked in for a new roof on Dec 20th, but this time I'm using Jack Smith Trimmers in Swansea who also get great feedback.

Yeah got a new one in July - was very impressed, took 2-3 hours £395 fully fitted in blue. Only bad part of the day was the speeding ticket afterwards :head:
