Afternoon

Looking at an ex-academy car tomorrow but would need to add a full wet weather hood and side screens. Any alternatives to the factory Caterham option? Looks like a full weather kit for £600 is what I need but any other companies out there offering better solutions?

Contacted Thundersport http://www.thundersport.co.uk/ but appears it is they who make them for Caterham anyway!

Cheers

Just buy them 2nd hand. A paid of doors is around £100 and a full hood a similar price in excellent condition. Or get some doors and buy a Soft Bits For Sevens half hood. These go for around £150 secondhand. Have a look on here, Blatchat or eBay

Thanks good info. Like the idea of the half hood looks a neat solution.

Worth having a look on Blatchat if you're a member of the L7 Club as this sort of stuff comes up for sale on a fairly regular basis. Also if you are a member of the club there are discounts to be had from both Thundersport (Oxted Group) and Soft Bits For Sevens.
