Since it’s still an aspiration to have a hardtop with my S1 OTS, I keep a lookout for adverts. Out of the blue, I spotted that someone was advertising some S2 hardtop rear window chromes and a front chrome piece. Given there is no difference between the S1 and S2 hardtop (save for the interior latches), I bought them on the basis that they might come in useful if I get a hardtop minus the chromes. Having received them safely in the post, and given them a polish, I’m now the proud owner of some original pieces. One of the hardtop rear window chromes is in fantastic condition and, whilst the other will need a bit of tlc, it should come up well.
So, it’s true, unicorns (well, at least Hardtop Rear Window chromes) do exist in the wild!!
