    Default Ragtop install

    I am in the process of putting a ragtop on my Series III. I was disapointed to see no Instructions for the novice. Does anyone know where I can find some good pictures that would show me where to intall the bits that came in the hoop kit? I have figured out most of them, but there are some "tie downs" that I can not figure out. Most importantly the ones that look like a "Y". Any pictures would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Default Soft top, hoop set, rain gutter kit, 88"

    Hopefully these images will help.

    How-to article from hard top to soft top article via LRO supplied via Wooday, thank you (1.8 MB PDF download).

    (ps... my family lives in Lake Tahoe, South Shore area. I used to live in Lake Valley area.)

    Thanks for the pics. I was there taking these pix with a good friend over in Plattsburg NY about 3 years ago !! Thanks for finding them again.

    I always wondered where those gray foam pieces were supposed to go....

    Great photos, they will be a big help. I did not get the foam pieces, I can't tell from the pictures where they are going. I am still curious about a bracket that looks like a "y"

    I have a great set of step-by-step on how to go from hardtop to soft top from an old Land Rover magazine. I've scanned to PDF but its 1.04MB and too large to post here. PM me and I can email it to you.
    Cheers!




    Les, you might think about posting this PDF somewhere on this forum. Its really handy!
