Well, I looked up "Coachtrimmers" in Yellow Pages, then checked out the possible candidates. The firm I picked was in cycling distance, and had some very nice classics in their workshop which were assurance enough of their standards. They did an excellent job for 200 (in 1984) and I may be visiting them again before long for a replacement.

If you're near the coast or a navigable waterway, you could do worse than investigate sailmakers & chandlers as well. Some of them do similar jobs for boats, and might be cheaper than a car firm. Or so I understand.

We had Taz's hood made by a local firm that makes hoods for river and canal boats, They did do a good job - but it is not cheap!

I got a boat hood manufacturer in Gillingham to make mine,there are probably a few boat hood/canopy manufacturers about where you are in Portsmouth.
