Nice how this is progressing, like DW already pointed out you have great skills in resourcing materials!
Stupid question: do you expect more/similar /less noise in the cabin with the hard top compared to the soft top.
I can imagine that the smooth surface of the hard top results in less noise, whereas the hard confined space may be more prone to resonance effects. Whatever, your hard top looks great.

HeadlessBlue..got a large sheet of 4mm self adhesive neoprene for £10 on ebay...lots of use on a Morgan to eliminate draughts.

When I get the side screens modified ( next month?) I will try water tests...used to leaks so not the end of the world if there are afew dribbles..every Morgan enthusiast carries a towel in the cockpit !!!!

BertR...The hardtop has a quality deep headlining so it will be interesting to see what happens...many cars I have driven with fiberglass/unlined hardtops can give a drumming noise...I have a side exhaust near my right ear so maybe that will drown out any other noises !

Thank you

Wow that looks superb, well done, if I was in the UK I would flop mould a few off that, carbon components are not a problem here with Emirates Team New Zealand next door.
