well after an extensive search we failed to find a replacement roofskin but paul did manage to pick up a second hand one already chopped off the car so yesterday we set about removing the skin from it and what a fookin job it was too well we cracked on an finally took about 7 hours to carefully take it off,
what we ideally need now is some guidance from u good folk on how to remove the skin from the car without causing any damage
any help much appreciated
liam

ps ill get paul to add some pics of us removing the new roof skin later

have you tried the mk1 fiesta forums, usually a pretty good place for parts and advice for these, although i'm sure there is plenty of knowledge here

pacificzetecturbo love the roof scoop man nice work not normally into fiestas but this thread and the fact another m8 is building one, and it just so refreshing to look at different cars for inspiration and fresh thinking.
