This kit is far superior to the version sold elsewhere. You only need to drill 2 holes in the poptop to mount them (as opposed to 8!!), no special tools are required, and all of the exterior hardware is Stainless Steel. Illustrated instructions are included. Note, this is the standard kit, recommended if you do not have anything mounted to on your poptop. We also sell a heavier duty version (part # PTS2, linked below) for people who may have moderate additional weight on their poptops, such as a surf board or two. Now available for '74-79 Bus as well! See PTS3 and PTS4, below.
