I have recently acquired an early set of SR molds.  I have made a few tops and would possibly be interested in making replacement panels if there was enough interest.

Here is a picture of the finished top:

It is the black part only.  I used the "sail" panel to show how it fits. But I do have all 13 molds for the entire SR.  Some need work before I can make any parts.  I figured I would check to see if there was any demand before I repaired the damaged molds for production.

Have you had any luck with this project?

Are your molds from Meyers?

I just bought an SR and I need the rear engine cover.

Just bought an SR with 200 miles on it, never completed. I need a top and side windows.

I am well along in the process of restoring an original 1970 BF Meyers, and have everything but the top. I would be interested in purchasing two tops if you are making them. I will gladly make it worth your while. Please email me at and let me know if you are interested. - Regards, Ed

Hi Ed,
  Sorry for the delay in responding I have started a new job and had my shop rented out from under me by my landlord. (I rent a small part of a larger building and the people he rented to want my area as well)

It has also been too cold for me to do any fiber glassing. I cannot at this time say when I will be able to make the tops etc.

Let me know when you go into production.  I can use a hard roof section for my 69 SR.  I owned a SR2 many years ago with fiberglass/plexiglass side windows and hard top, the top did not wrap over the edge of the back section, the side windows did the wrapping and sealed against he top.  Never had leaks in the rain.

Hi SurfNC,

Are you still making parts for SR's?

Are the Manx SR molds still around?  Is anyone working on making spare parts?  Wre there any SR window frame molds out there?
