Recommended Posts

Hi

Has anyone come across a GRP replica hard top and rear door ? A quick google found a US supplier of similar for Defender 90's but nothing for series Land Rovers

I know of one, but it's a bit far away, in Cape Town.                                                                                                                                                                                 Besides, I doubt the owner would sell it as it is earmarked for a project.

John ,Do you have any idea who made it ? I'm more interested in the history of it . Any pic's of it ?

This one looks well made , no cracks to speak of on the outside gel coat .

cheers

Santana had GRP roofs, with or without alpine windows..

Several companies in the UK made in the '70's - '90s all kind of GRP roof in many different shapes and sizes.

Yes , I've seen several different conversion GRP hard tops or complete rear bodies , just never seen an accurate replica of the standard aluminium one or rear door before . The images I've seen of 88" Santana HT's are a different shape to the aluminium one . I'll take a couple of pic's of the outside of it later when it stops raining .

cheers
