Fast Cars Honda S2000 


We've been buzzing here at Monsoon Car Hoods about the guys and girls from Fast Car Magazine coming to our see us to have a new hood fitted to their competition Honda S2000, yes you read that right, you can win this car!, So if you havent grabbed the latest Fast Car Magazine, we suggest you do!


Here is the excerpt from the write up about their visit...
"If you saw last month’s entry, you’ll be aware that we’d just purchased our 2017 competition car (see above for how you can win it!).

Now, whilst we have been impressed with the S2000, one area that really needed attention was the soft top. The previous owner Imran did tell us it had seen better days, but we didn’t look too closely at it when we bought the car as it came with a hard top.

But on closer inspection it was evident that it definitely needed replacing. There were quite a few tears where the roof had got a bit brittle and also a few holes, including one that looked like it had been repaired by someone’s Nan.

So the search was on to find a new soft top. Originally we thought about fitting it ourselves, that was until we saw a few guides and videos, and quickly decided it would be best left to the professionals.

After a search online it was evident that this is a pretty specialist field and that when it comes to supplying and fitting soft tops there’s only one place to go and that’s Monsoon Car Hoods.

Not only have these guys been plying their trade since the ‘80s, they also supply roofs to a lot of the trade, come highly recommend by the S2000 Owners Club ( and also Glenda’s Mum (after they did the roof on her Suzuki), so what more reassurance could we want?

As they say, Mum knows best! So we got it booked in with Michael and Sam at Monsoon Car Hoods.

A few weeks later and it was fi tting day. So Glenda drove the car to their HQ in East Sussex and left the S2k in their capable hands as he looked on.

Within less than an hour the roof was stripped back to its bare metal frame and ready for its fresh twillweave roof. And, it was at this point we decided it was lucky we did leave it to the professionals, as it was evident just how intricate a job fitting a soft top is.

Of course Monsoon’s highly skilled fitters made it look easy, but you could see this was from years of experience of replacing roofs on everything from Mazda MX-5s and BMW Z4s to Porsche 911s and Mercedes CLKs.

Three hours and a lot of work later it was complete and we had a roof that looked better than the day the S2000 rolled off the production line in Takanezawa, Japan – yes it really is that good!

If you need a new roof for your convertible or 4x4 we would definitely recommend Monsoon, not only are they super-cool people and offer great service, our roof also came with a lifetime window to hood bond guarantee. Happy days!

Anyway, we’re off for a winter drive with the roof down and heaters up. Has anyone seen my bobble hat?"
