i mailed them ages ago and to have one fitted somewhere down south buy the company who do them was around £700! they do any colour you like and they do a fit it yourself one which is less! i think around 500 for that!

Relatively cheap if you do it yourself......

Hire a circular saw, put step ladder next to Jasper, climb up, start cutting (don't worry about marking the hole out because you can guess it) Once the hole is there, finish off the sharp edge with some rubber edging, the roof itself can be made of tarpalin plastic (available from B&Q) the frame can be built (easily) from wood and simply nailed together. The whole ensemble can then be finished off with cable ties, magic tape, gaffer tape, duct tape and string.

For a neat and tidy job you'll need to follow my instructions step by step.
Otherwise it will look a right mess.

Go the whole hog and get the roof totally taken off!

Just remember though to get a roll cage - wouldn't like to roll a wesbastoised car, all the roof support will have gone!

Relatively cheap. Ours cost £50.00 fitted our selfs and thanks to Shaunyboy for supplying it

here it is being fitted...

If you do get a 2nd hand one make sure you get parts of the old roof with it so you can use this pieces as a template, very important! that you get the dimensions for the hole spot on!!

Any further advice give us a shout

I've just forked out for one and it came to £690 including fitting. Wangled a modest discount as my bro had one too. They do black, blue, green, red.
The Webasto website lists all approved fitters. I rang round a few until I found one who'd done the job recently. Not cheap but a brilliant mod...get that student loan out

Is this for Jasper or Yasser. If its for Yasser just push through the rust. Bish bosh job done. Then just use an umbrella if it starts raining.
