Default xr3i cabby needing new roof

as title wheres the best place to get a new roof for my g-reg xr3i cabby? im picking it up a week tomorrow in a swap for my car and it has two small 1inch tears in it, one on the top next to the door and another at the corner where it folds down at the rear.

does anyone know where to get this and how much it would cost?

cheers

neil

mohair looks the best, but you do need to take a bit more care when cleaning it

what kind of cleaning products are recommended for mohair roofs turbocabby? ill probably get vinyl for now as the car will be daily driven back and forwards to work and college 7days a week so its going to be a fair amount of dirt on it and i dont want to risk ruining a mohair roof on it.
