Targa top renewal and Mechanic - Surrey area

Hi all,
 
I'm new to the Club, so am posting this in the hopes that someone can help me out a little;
 
I have an '89 Targa C2, whose Targa roof is a little....care-worn, shall we say (!)
 
Can anyone recommend anyone in the Surrey area to have it recon'd? 
 
One other thing; I had a complete Engine/Flywheel/Clutch rebuild about 11k miles ago, so it is due for a decent service. Needless to say, a main Porsche Dealer is nearly the same price as the car to have this done (!), so if anyone knows of a really good air-cooled Mechanic in the Surrey area, that would be magic :)
 
Many thanks in advance and roll on sunny days...!
 
Chris

    Nothing much on targa roofs come in cheaply though. When 964's weren't worth much, cars with stolen roofs were written off by some insurance companies due to the cost of new roofs!

    You could contact Melvin Spear 964RS or Des Surdee Modified Register as they live south of London and both heavily into 964s. Contact emails and phone numbers in PP.
