Question Vinyl Roof for XC GXL

Hey there people, I'm insearch of a new vinyl roof for my XC GXL Fairmont. I was woundering if anyone had one or knew where I could get one.

Any help would be much appreicated.

Cheers

If you are around Melbourne I can recommend the Guy that did my old ZH Fairlane?I think he used to do them for Ford Dealerships in the 1970's?

Re: Vinyl Roof for XC GXL

It may not be as easy as it sounds.My panel beater just went through the same exercise in Melbourne.Apparently the material is not made in Australia and it is not being made in some colours at all any more.He was told that the light blue/green one that he got was the second last one left.
The guy who obtained and fitted it has been doing it for over 30 years so he knows what he is talking about.The reason for it appears to be very low demand.

Thanks Landau37, I'll try that restorer's hot line.

Thanks ANTHONY P, if you could post the contact details for the guy you used that would be great.

Thanks everyone for your help, if anyone else has any ideas please tell.
