fastback hardware info?

I just purchased a fastback top (95) and was hopeful you guys could give me some direction on the hardware... specifically, what size/thread/length bolt to mount the bow to the cage, what's the proper placement of the bar that goes across the tub, and am I missing a tailgate bar, or does the top not utilize a rear bar?

Any help would be much appreicated...

I'll be taking mine off in a couple weeks and will be glad to measure bolt lengthsand take photos. It does use a light tubular piece between the side rails - although I haven't bothered using it with this 90. I can however measure where the little clips bolt into place on the side. In the back there are two plastic clips and a sturdy bar that fits above the tailgate - this bar is necessary.

Thanks Chris... I think I have the bar that runs across the tub, but I don't seem to have the tailgate bar, so some photos of that bar and it's clips would be great too... the PO passed away, and there's a ton of stuff I received from his widow, so it might be in the piles of misc stuff... Thanks for your assistance...

Do you need the mounts for the bar that runs across the tub? I have those, still installed in my truck if you need photos or want them.

Alexandra,

Thanks for the offer, but I think I have those... they're about an inch and a half long black plastic, with a "C" shaped flange, with the mouth of the "C" opening along the axis of the two mounting holes (bolts or rivets?)...? Am I correct? Then I'm presuming that the opening of the "C" faces toward the front of the truck to take the pressure from the snaps on the tub bow...?

Thanks for your assist/offer...

Correct. Mine are riveted in- that's why they are still there.

I think East Coast Rover has the plastic bits for the bar over the tailgate, they may also have the bar.

Chris,

Any chance it's warm enough in Dallas yet that you've taken off the fastback to measure those bolts?
