I finally installed my unobtainium roof rack. The screws fitted into the premade spots in the hard top. It looks and will act much better than the type 3 roof rack I used to have, though a lot smaller.

I think I posted earlier to be cautious of putting a VWoA hardtop on over a roll bar, It took me a while to find out that my roll cage was 1/2 " too high, so I now have no roll bar.

I also installed the wiper motor I got from AlCapulco, it works great and doesn't blow fuses like the old one.

Very Nice. Unobtainium--very witty. How did you come across the roof rack?
Is it the VW one (with sticker)? The same roof rack components were used on Volvos and International scouts.

If you have original VW 5 point roll cage--the hard top should fit. Or you can take out hard top side support bars and put them in storage.
