Exclamation Instructions for fitting HOOD sticks, mounts, etc.?

Anybody know where I can find some detailed instructions on mounting the hood kits, hoops, exactly where the holes go, where the rope ties go, etc.?

Ordered a kit from the UK and the instructions include only how the parts fit together, but not how they fit to the truck.

Thanks!

Chris - I actually have been meaning to order up one of your hoods as well - the one for hoops on a converted SW90 of course... but yes this is going on my 1997 SW (which I've stripped the hard top from).

Arbi - of course I am. Making the thing lighter and breezier.

I have an 1985 L/R 90 SW and think mine has the mounting holes/tubes in the top of the body capping.
I can look tomorrow.

It looks like those are integrated right into the cappings. I don't know what your plan was but last I checked, cappings were relatively inexpensive, maybe it is worth just getting a set that are designed to hold the sticks.

For parts you might try http://www.tntlr.com/ - Bill also may be able to advise on the holes.
He was very helpful when I needed hood parts.
If you still need pics I could show you where they go on an ex-mod.


Here's another site in the UK

My understanding is that they just drop into holes in the cappings. in the pic I posted you can see them right behind the bulkhead and in tamacos post you can see them in the back corners.

Not sure that the NAS cappings have the proper size holes \ tubes.
