Do you know what brand your bikini top is?

Ive been looking at them and wondering if they include a frame or if I have to permanently install it on my frame.

Congrats on the purchase. What’s a “show bar”?


The legally safe term for the Thing Shop’s roll bar.

Hello everyone. After years of wanting to get a Thing, I finally took the dive last month. Here it is; still trying to decide on a name. I am planning on adding a full convertible top with side windows and a "show bar."

I joined the Thing club on Saturday. She has a 2056 motor and rancho trans with a close ratio Gene Berg shifter....What a fun car to drive! This car doesn't need anything, the previous owner really upgraded this car nicely and took great care if it. My only upgrades will be to install a smaller steering wheel and maybe retractable 3-point belts(lots info about that in the 181 forum).
