What a difference a roof makes!!
I bought a Spider last week and have done about 350 miles in her so far with not a hitch.
She is going into the bodyshop tomorow for the alloys refurbing and a few marks on the bodywork sorting, some of the worst being on the panel that lifts to raise the soft top.
Because of this I had to remove the hard top this afternoon.
Despite it being a bit cold today I thought it was a good opportunity to take my first open top blast in her.
I put the windbreak up behind the seats, wound the heater up and off I went.
I had a good drive and stayed warm (the flat cap came in usefull), but what a difference.
Interestingly the with the roof off the car stayed far warmer and quieter than our Eunos and warmer and quieter than the SLK's we have had.
We are taking her down to Spain next week (LHD car) registering her onto Spanish plates.
I cant wait to get up into the mountains on those twisty roads.
