    I need to get a few pics showing placement and number of snaps that are used by the various companies that make snap soft tops. One of the guys who bought a bikini top wants to see how many snaps should be used and where they should be placed on the windshield frame.

    I'm thinking the snaps should be 4" apart on the full snap tops...
    Burt4x4 has the full snap top...

    Yup I have one, i would guess about 20 snaps up top. I would guess there is no standard location for the snaps. THe way Kayline had you install the top was to drill the holes one at a time in a cross pattern. Each snap hole is as unique as the next.
    Hope this helps

    I've got a Bestop snap top and also need to order a bikini. Maybe Since I'm close to TONYP I could hook up with him and/or his guy and he could measure my rig for a new top and get the Bestop pattern at the same time.

    Bestop includes a paper pattern for the windshield snaps so all Bestop people should be the same. I've also got a stock rollbar so this setup could be pretty common.

    Let me know /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif
