We do more than fit car hoods – we make them too!

We do more than fit car hoods – we make them too!

Although we import many of our soft tops from the American companies such as Robbins Auto Tops and GAHH, we still manufacture 22 types of soft tops.

Blog-100616-Image-2Recently our most popular hoods have been the Ford Escort and VW Golf as these cars are going up in value. We also manufacture convertible hoods Mazdas, TVRs and Alfas to name but a few.

We manufacture on average over 100 hoods every month. They are cut out on our digital cutting bed then hand finished using various methods such as sewing and heat welding. We manufacture hoods using vinyl and two types of Haartz mohair: Stayfast & Twillfast.

You might be interested to know that one of our team used to work for Rolls Royce and another used to make saddles for the Queen’s horses!


So if you have a convertible car and need a new hood for it, you know you’ll be in very safe hands!

Meet the Car Hood Team of Fitters

Meet the Car Hood Team of Fitters

At Car Hood Warehouse we have been manufacturing, supplying and fitting soft tops for over 20 years

And our team of fitters are very experienced and their collective knowledge means we can cater for a large range of makes and models of convertible cars. So we thought we’d introduce our team to you properly…


HondaS2000A-WebTyrone is very knowledgeable with the BMW E36, Honda S2000 and Porsche Boxster.  He knows all there is about the certain faults with each model and what advice to give to customers on how to deal with any issues. He’s also our main mobile fitter as he loves to get out and about.


Brian does all our hood fits from the Mercedes range and the Jaguars. These more classic cars have sometimes been sitting in a garage or barn for a long time and it’s not unheard of for us to get a few unwanted guests such as spiders and evidence of mice that have been living inside the hood!


David, just like the cars he loves to deal with, is our “old classic” and our highly experienced Beetle specialist. He can transform even the most run down Beetle to look its best again and he has a real passion for the big American cars.


Nick is our Mazda guy, he could probably fit one with his eyes closed he’s done so many of these but he is also very well versed in lots of other makes and models too.

Car-Hood-Fitters-1These are just a few of the makes and models our team deals with on a regular basis, but as you can imagine, after 20 years (and yes this is pretty much the original Car Hood team!) we cover almost any convertible car you would care to name – well nearly.

For a complete list of the makes and models we can supply and fit just take a look at our Find Your Car Hood page.

Oh and one more thing… as well as proving a supply and fit service to our personal customers, we also supply car hoods to the trade throughout the UK and therefore, if you can’t come to us, we can recommend a trusted fitter for you.


If you would like to know more about our team, the hoods we supply and fit or anything else then please get in touch.
