Coupe with Rag top modification

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been asked before. If you fit a ragtop to your Coupe does it affect your insurance? I fitted one to my V6S and have done the same to my 380. Any thoughts?. Answering my own question I would have thought security implications as a minimum.

Going to buzz my insurer anyway to find out.

cheers

Current insurer (Admiral) were okay about although I do wonder if the non-European call centre worker really understood, I’d had to spell out Exige more than once, been with them for years (multi-car) & always get on well with the Welsh call centres but they seem to have changed

Sorry to hijack your thread, but does anyone know is this bracket is fitted to all cars?

Just wondered if I removed my hard top roof, what I need to do to get the canvas roof to fit or is it just a strait swap?

Yup, that's the correct bracket for both hard top and soft top

You will also have these bad boys... (front brackets and grommets)

What you won't have are the corresponding rear grommets...

Drilling/grinding out the holes for those and glueing them in place is the "conversion"

I have them fitted. But as far as I know the car has never had a soft top fitted.

That is so odd! I need to double check my cup and see if they’re pre installed on mine. I doubt or would have noticed. 

But they also seem a bit too high up in yours, did you get the car brand new or used?

How would you know if it’s been fitted or not?

I did my research on the car, spoke to Howard Lotus who knew the car, as it was there demo. But I didn’t speak to the previous owner. So it could have been done during their ownership. But the car didn’t come with a canvas room. I could try get in contact with him and ask.

I’m keeping the soft top when I trade mine in & will be using it again
