Hi All

Had an email in from a guy and he thinks these came from an early Beta Spider, but I have never seen anything like it, can anyone recognise them?

Thanks

Peter

Is it some kind of storage sleeve for the roof?

Hi Ian

The seller has 3 and thought one was from his Spider from 75 and he said for the tonneau, but personally never seen one, hence the question. Wonder if it just came with Series 1?

Hi Eric

Do you mean the cover for the rear fold down or the hard top?

Out of curiosity and the guy simply asked for a decent donation to the Red Cross Ukraine appeal I decided to buy all 3 and will see what turns up……

Hi Peter the fold down roof cover. I have never seen a cover for the hard top so maybe that is what they are.

Hi Eric

Me neither and at first I did not believe it, but then the guy found a photo of a Spider with both the fold down cover and the cover for the hard top. He had a Spider from new for 10 years, a ‘75 which means S1, so suspect it may have been an S1 feature which did not make it to the S2 to save on costs. Alternatively it could have been like the ‘hard top’, which was made for the Spider, which was an option you could buy.

Peter
Have you got a copy of the Photo in question ?
If so could you post it?
I just don't get it ? Can't visualize it?
They just look like pieces of straight vynl and only female Poppers ?
