Fastback Full Top Conversion

I have a 1995 D90 Fastback. The kids hate the fact that here in Maine even in August the evenings are chilly and I don't have a way to shield them from the cold. I have aftermarket installed front facing back seats. I have heard that the remaining roll cage pieces are very hard to find, so I am wondering if anyone has any ideas. I searched the forums and found some stuff from back in 2005 but nothing newer.
Something like these pics from the Sightings thread would be perfect, but it is Euro Defender and I don't think it would be a complete fit on an NAS.

Josh is right Nene has their own. http://www.neneoverland.co.uk/4x4ser...e_soft_top.php It is their own version of the original "x-treme" and "x-treme 2" top which began as an aftermarket item. Land Rover liked it and then contracted the company to make more. If I remember the story correct. The original was 3 layers, cotton, rubber, cotton and insulate well.

Who needs Google when we have Josh!
Maybe I am not looking for the right thing when I looked at those places they don't seem to have the type of roof I am looking for. Drop top.

Go to the link and scroll down to click on the first photos of the black truck, it is the fold down type.

None of them will be plug and play with your cage. But you can use these as ideas, or buy the kit and fabricate them to work. Second section.

You have to lead him to water and give him the straw.

I prefer Beer, but no straw needed. Thanks

There's a C hoop for sale on eBay if you want to just buy that. Details in the for sale section, but the seller is a forum member.
