Hoods Question from Stephanie Percivaldi

Submitted on 20/09/2010

Hi, I'm in watford Herts. There is a small worn patch approx 2cm long and 1/2 cm wide on the fabric roof right above part of the roof frame, is this repairable? I want the hood cleaned and rear window polished but not much point if the hood will have to be replaced. Many thanks. Model: renault Megane cabriolet


If its not leaking, in other words the damage is just on the surface, then there is a way to seal it so it doesn't get any worse, however it will look like it has a scar. As this is not aan invisible repair we would only charge £25.54+vat for this.

So I would recommend you find out how much it cost for a reasonable quality one, then make up your mind whether its worth have it clean and reproofed and then live with the scar, or whether you want a complete new roof on a slightly older car.

If you want, give Barton and Sons a call as they are not to far from you and last time I asked, I was surprised how reasonable it was. We also know that they are very good, which is one of the reasons why we have them as one of our experts. You may want to ask them about a possible repair as well.

Have a scroll down our experts on this page where you will find Malcolm Barton and a link to their website.
