Cheers dylan

probably cheaper to buy a different set unless you need 8" wide as the channels will be expensive

Yes think your right, I don't really need a aco drain, it's just I've got these tops. Will put them back in the pile.
Thanks all.

You'll not get anyone to sell you them separately since they'll be left with extra tops themselves. Giles's idea is a good one, I've seen it done in a few places successfully.
My xmas weight in pile isn't even gonna pay for the diesel to get it there this year ffs. :-(

Chuck the cast tops on ebay and put the money towards a set of Aco Civicdrains! The cast steel tops are 20/ea+VAT to buy!
