Hey Guys,

I just bought a hardtop for my VS Ute and I was just wondering how to mount it. It’s from FlatTop I think. With small brackets that look like they need to go through the rear parcel shelf piece that the tonneau cover would clip into in the front.

Thanks in advance.

It's not a hard job if you haven't done it yet I can show you how I did mine. Let me know.

First off I removed all the riverts that hold the soft cover from behind the rear window.
Then I placed the hard lid on the tub to line up the hinges to get the correct pivot point, was a bit of stuffing around but once I was happy I teck screwed the hinges in place.
And what I thought was going to be the hardest, fitting the gas struts I just removed two of the hex bolts from either side of the tub and the ball joints screwed right in just in front of where the spreader bar is for the soft cover.
Lastly I closed the lid and jumped in the tub to install the L bracket so it can be locked.
Really quite easy, hope this helped if not let me know.

Hi mate, could you please send me some pics of how you mounted it. Mine seems to mount a little differently to mine. The pic shows the brand hardtop I have.
