Westfalia roof dimensions and roof fabric lining

  1. Hi has anyone put a westfalia pop top on a bus and if so have you any dimensions for bolts etc. Plus any help with installing a fabric roof would be nice tips etc...

    I have asked in prototype but not had many replies and joined this site before I bought the bus.

    Look forward to some replies. [​IMG][​IMG]

  4. No worries, I can't help though as I've got a rear hinged one. I'm sure someone will sort you out though:)
     
  5. The early roofs were fitted to vans with a factory sunroof. Does yours already have this, or are you chopping your tin roof?
     
  6. No mine does not have a factory sunroof so no worries there and the hole is just behind the cab area as shown in picture I know where to cut the roof just would like a diagram of where of the bolts and fittings go to secure roof .

    Thanks for replying to me.[​IMG]

    It should have the H frame fitting for the front end....the big horizontal bar you push up to open.

  10. Yeah it's in a bag of parts.
    I don't have this bracket though or any plans for the holes in the roof.
