    you will only be able to buy one if the kit manufacturer of your kit has made them.
    the roofs are so specific to the body that anyone thats had one made will not fit another make of kit.
    a hood from a repeating source should be around 795 for a good quality one.
    to get one made from scratch by experiance will cost you between 3000 and 5000 for the inital development and patternmaking to creat the first one.

    you need to go back to the kit maker and buy there's no matter what they charge. it will be a lot cheaper.

    Another option would be to find yourself a used commercial sewing machine and make your own. Having a sewing machine for the interior is also a benefit. The more you can do yourself will keep your cash in your pocket. Not to mention the satisfaction you get from doing it yourself.

    Don't know how to sew?

    Read - practice - go to a class - more practice, trial and error..... You will get good at it in no time.

    the mr2 one has been ripped off for the conversion. And its meant to look like the f430 shape at the back comes with the fiberglass extention part for the wings on the back. When i bought the kit it only came with matterial supplied and not already trimmed which i found very suprising when i got charged $800 for the matterial haha fuk wit supplier.

    well as you bought it direct from a manufacture why dont you go back to them for instructions?

    Enzo, what are your options for an MR2 Mk3-based 430 ? Do you have a motor-powered retractable canvas top ?

    iv been told by the manufacture $3000 which i thought is expensive once you calculate $800 + $3000 sounds like too much for a soft top.
