    How does the "magical load bar" attach to the soft top? Even steve's write up doesn't mention holes, but it's the only way I can think that it attaches.

    i remember several years back on Trucks he did this install. The frame of the can back was made with holes to hold the yakima. He had to burn holes for the bolts.

    I know the frame is made with holes. Did he have to put holes in the canvas of the top?

    Hmm.... Burning holes in CLOTH? Why didn't I make that congical leap? What an IDIOT I am.... especially since we were also talking about metal, and often oxy-acetylene cutting is refered too as burning? Even welding? Sorry I didn't think steve would decide burning his top would be the best way to get holes in it, I should just be castrated. :rolleyes:

    everyone is right.....:wink1:

    He had to burn holes through the cloth because it is canvas and if you just cut it it could run or rip real easy but if you burn it it seals the holes so they don't rip any further.
