I have been considering buying this from hardtopsuk, but have been wondering what the catch/downfall was, as it seems a lot cheaper than all the alternatives.
It could well be my next purchase, thanks for the review.

I have now used it for a couple of days and it's make such a difference.
to be honest I can't see any difference between the hardtops unit and the pegasus one (only the price).

+1. Ordered today, Monday and due for delivery tomorrow. Have to say service was good, so here's hoping the product is as well. Will write up how easy to fit and if worth the notes

NP300 Cayman Blue Tenka manual Euro 5. Nissan truck top, just some extra lights but WITH NNNet STICKERS front and back 👊 Loving it.
Suit in a Ute but wannabe weekend warrior in the Shires!

As promised, my Pro Lift kit was delivered today so ✔️ on the customer service front.
Instructions are pretty basic and looked a little more difficult than it turned out to be, however, I tried to do this on my own and when you come to fit the new hinges, because they are spring loaded I had to rest the tail on a box to get the angle to screw one side of the hinges, tad fiddly but not too bad.
The spring loaded hinges and the gas pumped arm, does make it far easier to open and doesn't fall like a rock now.
Once you have done this, the second one would be far easier and yes, very pleased with the result for less than a hundred notes (ex vat price). Wifey very very impressed and likes a lot!

Thanks for the notes!

Sounds straightforward. I'll have to get one ordered. I do worry about the tailgate dropping, especially with my one year old daughter around.
