[ROVERNET - UK] P6- roof insulation - thanks- and a question about roof mastic

Thanks Vern Peter and Eric for your kind advice re the space for insulation
in the roof of my P6.

I'll follow your thinking and cut the new insulation so as to leave space
for the canopy bows.  that way the existing insulation will be all that is
taking up space, hence no change from before.

I have yet to visit an automotive parts retail shop, but I'll be needing a
suitable black mastic or similar for when I put the new roof on.  Can
members please suggest a brand name?

Many thanks

I agree with Eric , there really isn't much room so his between the
bows approach will work best i think.

If you live in the sun and you are looking for heat control, a layer
of heavy aluminum foil, most polished side towards the roof and spot
glued in a few places, will save you a couple of degrees inside the
car in the blazing sun, and slow the time it will take to warm up
sitting closed in the sun.
