Thanks Alex!

I use Mcnaughtons quite often.

I went to gelmar today, kitchen fitting place at Hillfox.

They stock alot, but nothing heavy duty.

I didn't find what I was looking for there.

They do have small slides (500mm max) & small stays (250mm max)

These ones look great. I went to look at their website. Do yourself a favour before throwing 11k at these. Look carefully at the fine print... YOU have to have the rear windows removed and surround touched up at a panel shop before they fit them.... ONLY they fit them..... and take a look carefully at the finishing... the plastic trim of the window surround protrudes into the aperture. Not the nicest look for me I'm afraid.

Perhaps I should look at manufacturing some myself.
