The frame will pin together.
STEP 3: Assemble the cross bars of the top cover frame.
Note: The cross bar curve faces upwards as well.
Front Cross Beam: Slide 2 x tube Flat tab tub !ttings onto the bar. The Flat tab tube !ttings are used to
attach your front legs to the top cross beam. At Each end of the cross beam there is a triangular !tting.
Rear Cross Beam: The cross beam has the triangular !ttings on each end of the beam..

STEP 5: Assemble the brace bar between front Leg and rear Legs
Note: Front legs use the slightly curved length for it legs facing forwards.
Note: Rear legs use the large curved length for its legs facing to the rear and outwards
You can adjust the angle of the brace bar to fit the distance between front and rear leg.
STEP 6: Attaching the legs to your Centre Console.
Position the bottom of the front leg approx x 2 - 4 inches of the floor.
Hold the mount against the console and mark the position. Ideal to have you legs wide apart.
Check the inside of your console for objects or wires before drilling into the console.
When you attach the mount we recommend putting extra 12 mm ply backing to strengthen your
console to stop !ex and movment of the console. The extra board sits between the console and the alloy
backing disc we supply. Position the 2nd mount on the leg as high as posible on your console.
The rear leg you can place higher of the floor than the front leg.
This will angle the top giving you more height at the back and head clearance.
STEP 7: Attach the Front legs to the Top Frame cross beam.
Before you lock in the small grub screw you can rotate the legs to the position you require.
It is recommended that you face the front leg curve forwards.
Attatch the top of the front legs to the Flat tab tube #ttings on the top frame cross beam.
You can move the !at tab #ttings to be in the correct position along the cross beam.
You can have the legs straight forwards or angle slightly outwards.
STEP 8: Attach the rear legs to the top frame side bar.
The rear leg curve faces backwards and angle outwards.
You rotate the legs outwards to the side bars of the top frame.
Your Flat tab tube #tting can be place on the side bars of the top frame or outer eadge of the cross
beam. You will have to determine which is the better stable position that suit your console.
LOWRING for storage. You can remove the T Top by detaching the 8 bolts from the mounts. OR
