Red face soft top

Question of the year, where can I purchase a soft top for a classics roadster? Or what parts are available to fabricate one? Where can purchase the header/buckle assembly that lays along the top of the windshield frame? If I had that assembly and could fabricate the hinged bow assembly couldn't I have a reputable shop fabricate the soft top itself? Seriously giving it a try if I can gather that header piece along the top of the windshield. Any suggestions?

Keep looking and one will surface. Place an add on this site. Took me six months and found a perfect setup on this site.

Default Windshield and soft top

Correct me if I'm wrong, As I understand it the windshields are the same from almost all Cobra replicas. If that's truly the case, can I just buy the windshield header for the soft top from another manufacturer, then fabricate my own bows. Then have a competent shop fabricate the soft top for my car? Since the cockpit is wider and longer than a normal Cobra its a custom one off top thats no longer made. Looking for options.

They are not all the same; there are differences between the manufacturers. Fabricating bows would be relatively easy. Getting a header to fit, when it doesn't, would be much more difficult.
