    Red face Newbie

    Hi all
    New to the cobra club, but no stranger to kit cars, I have built and IVA 2 Westfields, Last one was April 2021 sport 250 with a ford Eco boost engine from the fiesta ST, Mazda gearbox, and Mazda slip diff.
    Based in Somerset.

    I have just purchased a 2021 AK cobra in Red.
    Time to personalise it a small amount during the winter months.

    If anyone has any information or contacts for a Tonneau cover and soft top, let me know, as I cant find anyone local.
    and its long trip up to AK and they cant do anything until late Jan 2022
    I can get the hardware easy enough, but finding the fabric and someone to sow etc is proving difficult.

    Thanks
    Mike

    Hi Mike, Welcome.
    I bought a tonneau kit from AK and fitted it myself. It came with all the fittings and was fairly straightforward install.
    AK also do a soft top but that looks a bit complicated for me and I think a lot of them are fitted by AK at the factory.
    Cheers
    Steve

    Hi Mike

    Welcome to the club.

    I also have an AK. AK will only fit a soft top, they did mine and it is excellent. I had to leave my car with AK for a week for them to fit it. Speak to Jon at AK.

    All the best
