    DAX - Europa Soft top

    Morning,
    Does anyone have any photos or measurements they could share of where the ferrules are supposed to be located for the Europa Softtop on a Dax?
    I know they are just behind the door frame so the hood frame is in the right place to keep it taught both in front and behind but i'd rather check for some measurements that are known to be accurate before i drill holes in the body!

    Cheers,
    Mark

    I don't know, but I'm following you with interest .. if the Europa hood fits it seems a very inexpensive way to get a soft top for a Dax

    I do - it's still hanging from the garage ceiling! But I'd kinda like both.. hard top for when the weather is definitely not great, soft top for touring

    so' I've gone with tonneau and hardtop as a cheaper option with the same idea. Crying into my beer atm as it looks like I have been thwarted in my ambition to have hardtop finished and painted by autumn.
    I'll bore you another time on why.

    I wondered about getting a hardtop but i like the idea of having the soft top in the boot ready for when the heavens open (which they do alot in the Peak District). If i drove the car with a hard top I wouldn't have the option to remove it if i set off and the weather warmed up.

    I thought we had that sorted Kev, and it was going to be done ready for Stoneleigh ?
