TR3a New Hood

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a new hood from Don Hoods Birmingham. Advise would be welcome as to the best material to use, and would it be a good idea for Don Hoods to fit it to the car.

Thank you. Russell

What colour and material type do you currently have? 

Does your existing hood match your sidescreen?

It should match your sidescreens and/or tonneau in both grain and colour and welting.  Unless it is just a storm cover, then buy the cheapest you can find. 

I have a NOS Sidescreen TR white soft top without any windows fitted if anyone fancies a challenge.... UK £ 100.00 plus postage.

Cheers

When I bought my hood and tonneau, the supplier recommended Everflex. I opted for his recommendation for the tonneau but went for a heavy duty vinyl for the hood. 

If I was doing it again I would opt for Everflex for both.

PS I’m pretty sure the material I was offered was called Everflex but checking the Don hoods site, it refers to Stayfast as their lower cost canvas option. Either way, the canvas is a lot easier to handle, particularly when it’s cold.

I used Everflex via TRF (Which I think comes from Skinner in the UK) for the TR3A top, tonneau and sidescreens and I liked that material so much I'm going to do the TR6 top next spring with the same fabric but in black.

Hi Russell ~

Many years ago I bought a new vinyl hood for my Austin Healey '100' from Don Hoods. Excellent quality.

Tom.
