I done mine earlier this year. Straight forward to do, but lifting the hood off is a 2 person job as its bloody heavy. I have a free week off in september and October so could help then then

Roxy I can't tell you how easy the hood is to swap over, it's almost literally two circlips, a couple of screws & 6 bolts.

Little more work if you are also swapping the rear window section.

You only really need a spare pair of hands to lift roof off / on.
