Just the Canvas... And just curious. The tops been up and down countless times in only 5500 miles. Can't possibly stand abuse forever. Garage kept, though, that should help.

Garage is good and I also use Autoglym Hood cleaner say once every 4-6 months.<P>It keeps it clean and waterproof and stops the corners going fuzzy!<P>Hood replacement is actually a bit of a grey area depending on vehicle year and parts required.<P>As you know, the hood is double skinned and I believe that the outer comes in 2 parts. You're probably looking at a replacement cost of about £200 for the outer alone and 2nd mortgage for the inner as this comes with all the motors etc.<P><p>[This message has been edited by topless_tart (edited 06-11-2002).]
