    Greetings matey, bienvenue a ASN!

    We like pics up of the motor, its a kind of unwritten rule here lol !

    Id recommend a 2.2 for the pigeons, just make sure when you bag 'em they dont land on your car.

    Autoglym do a kit "Cabriolet Fabric Hood - Maintenance Kit" which includes a tough sponge a cleaner and a waterproof protector. They sell it in Halfords for 19, but you'll use half the protector in one application. I treated mine this weekend and the water beads are back. I guess I'll have to wait and see how long it lasts
