Thanks for the link, I've fitted the £5. eBay one for now, if it's no good I'll change to that one.

Not done much to the car apart from drive it!
A couple of cosmetics I need to attend to;
Missing one of the screws that hold the carpet mats down,

Anyone have a part number, or know where I can get one? I can only seem to find upgraded alloy ones.

Also, the headlining is like a Bedouin tent :D , I've replaced a couple of headlinings on Saab 900 Turbos before so this shouldn't be too hard, any idea where to source new material? Might go for alcantara if I can't find the original. I still also quite fancy a 'long scoop' roof, possibly carbon, any thoughts?

Cheers,

Not sure of the material, Allon White's may know.

Are they the grey plastic screws that hold the carpet down? I may have one somewhere or DeRoure I guess.

Cheers Jonny, ordered four new ones (grey plastic) from DeRoure (wasn't aware of that website, looks useful).

Just an update, ended up completely removing the fabric headlining (the hot weather had made it even worse, to the extent that it was literally draped around my head at one point)
I did look into having it replaced with new cloth but ended up opting to paint it (added lightness), now looks much better.
