A link would be nice. Your right I don't live on eBay however I do look at s30 stuff quite a bit and can't say I have come across them.

Sorry, I was being a bit lazy, not deliberately unhelpful!

Dave B has done the good deed though.

They do them in "synthetic leather" for a bit less too. You can choose the stitching colour and from several headrest logo designs. I considered these at one point as they do the JDM "Fairlady Z" logo as an option.

Had a spare afternoon so thought I'd best get stuck in and be 'roofless' 😜

Must take some mega patience to get a skin off to reuse on another car, hardest part was melting lead joints with hot air gun, suspect a blowtorch would've been loads quicker but I haven't got one lol

Are they just door skins Dave?
It will be interesting to see how they go on if so.

I'm planning on changing the roof on my blue car to get rid of the sunroof. I have had the carbon roof from Craig quite a while and plan to fit it the same as Ben did in this thread:

That's some build 😎 I was going to go with a carbon roof initially, but talked myself out of it as the car is going to be bright orange and think having the roof a different colour would spoil the curves with it relying on the roof shape so much for its looks. I'm normally a sucker for carbon, it'll certainly have a couple bits on when done.

Yeah they're just skins, hoping it'll be quite a simple job, let's hope I'm not in for a shock 😂

I know what you mean Dave. If I could find a steel roof skin then I think that's the way I would go. Until then I will go the blended in carbon look or maybe just paint the whole roof.

PS. My favorite spoiler shape too.
