Default Soft top fitter in the South West

Hi all,

As the title suggests, can anyone recommend a soft top supplier/fitter in Cornwall or the South West?

I have been recommended South West Roadsters in Bideford by a colleague that owns an mx5. Anyone else had experience of them?

Any help would be appreciated!

I live in Plymouth. Cheapest I could find around here was £850 supplied and fitted by a place called Vehicle re-trim services.

Debated whether or not to go to Jack Smiths in Swansea as a night in a hotel, petrol and a new roof would have been half the price!

Ended up buying a used mohair roof with a glass window and frame (mine was a plastic screen) on eBay for £125 and fitting it myself using a how to guide on here.

Not a difficult job, no special tools required and took me around 5 hours from start to finish.

Go to Jack Smith’s. I’ve had two from him and was very satisfied with them.

My current S has a Monsoon roof and the quality is no better.
