MGTF replacement hood screen

Hi all,

the time has come for me to need to replace the rear screen on my hood. I know there are a couple of people out there who offer a postal repair service but ideally I would rather let experienced hands take the task on.

I have found one place locally (Ipswich in Suffolk) that can do the job, but I feel they are a tad on the expensive side. Are there any other known places around here I can get the job done more competitively?

Cheers in advance,

Pete

Well it has already arrived, and is now sitting there ready for my challenge!

Will have to see if I can find a chance between work and rain to have a crack at it later.

Many thanks for the superb delivery service

All fitted and looks like new again - perfect!

No issues, apart from getting quite wet in the April showers.

Cheers.

Pete
