We see a variety of top fittings in all kinds of different locations on Bugeyes. It’s not too hard to get it right… the short video below shows you what the proper fittings are and where they are located.
Top bars are another challenge with Bugeyes, as they do not come with your new top and have traditionally been difficult to locate. The front windshield bar is often missing, and in fact I drove Gumby through the 80s without one, even though above 35 miles per hour the front of the top would balloon open to scoop up all the rain. You’ll stay a lot drier with one fit and we are happy to offer them for sale here.
BTW, if you have an early 9 stud windshield (which only came on the first roughly 5000 cars, no front bar is needed.)
As always if you have any questions about Bugeyes or need the correct parts for your car, send Ryan a message at email@example.com.
