    You sure this is a Whitby top? It looks like an early FFR soft top. If it's a FFR top you have almost all the parts. Just need the
    ferrule that go into the body to mount the cross bar (Whitby sells a nice set of them with a rubber O ring to seal them against the body), the pins that go into the body (get them from boat shops), if it is a FFR top there will be two straps sewn into the top that wrap over the cross bar that you need to install a snap on the end of the straps, and if you don't have them the clamps that connect the front of the top to the windscreen support posts.

    Then if you want side windows, Whitby side curtains may work or while in England I visited the Europa Specialist Spares store and it's amazing the parts they have for the Cobra's including the hard frames for the side curtains. They will ship parts for you.


    I've been running a FFR soft top and it does help in the rain. It will keep you less wet. NOT dry just a lot less wet!

    Ralph thanks for added info, I was under the impression the Whitby made the early tops for FFR (?).

    This soft top came before the Whitby top. Now the basic soft tops from FFR, are the Whitby designed tops. Then there is the new premium soft top that I have... not yet... talked myself into purchasing one …. yet
