No. Pop top style, so34. Not sub hatch.

That would be too easy Franz, I need the hardware that attaches the fiberglass part to the roof and lets it pop up and down. Them 3 spring loaded X thingies on the sides and rear of the fiberglass poptop, what are they called anyway? I have a factory hole with wood around it and a shiny new reproduction fiberglass cover Smile nothing else Frown ](*,) Frown.

If you're looking for OG stuff, someone in CO has a few of the actual hinges. The rubber T clips work from WW. The x brackets I purchased from space roofs. Stronger than the original ones. As for the fiberglass/wood combo, I used a glue/wood screw combination. Also the wood is used to staple the canvas around the exterior but I'm sure you already know that.

Is that someone on this site? Would that someone be kind enough to help out a fellow Coloradian [-o<

I've been doing that for most of the last year! Westfalia, Westphalia, pop top, poptop, camper roof, I've been searchin!! ](*,) ](*,) Thinking about a wanted ad there but someone already has 1 for pop top hardware ](*,) ](*,)
BW Bugz had a few latch ends, couple old rubber latch pieces, no mounting parts. I woulda bought Cory's top and 2 hinges for 650 but by the time I got shipping from cali lined up it was gone so I went with repro 'glass. if the hinges are out there guys are holdin on to them. Frown
I thought maybe someone around here would take pity on me.
