Installing a Bikini Top and have questions
 
Ok I bought my 93 with a hard top on it. This summer I want to install a Bikini Top. I believe I'm missing the hardware that goes from the windshield to the roll bar. I see the holes on both the i believe line up but I have no idea what the piece is called or how it would be installed any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a soft top header rail that screws down where the hard top attaches over the windshield. The bikini top slides into that then is attached to the rollbar with the straps that are sewn on the back of the top. Hope that helps.

Ok when I got the Bikini Top I bought the Windshield Chanel, but I'm thinking of the rod that goes from the Windshield to the Roll Bar. But thank you anyway.

93 Wrangler, there is no bar from the windshield to the roll bar. The bikini secures to the roll bar going from the windshield to the cross member of the roll bar behind the front seats.

Sounds like you are missing the footman loop on the inside of the windshield.
It's used to hold the windshield in place when folded down on the hood.
There should be another footman loop lined up in the middle of your hood.
My YJ had the original short strap in place in the footman on the windshield.

I had to remove it when I installed my Bestop Bikini as it utilizes the footman on the windshield, a long strap & buckle from the roll bar to the footman.

I don't what the deal is with the holes in the roll bar.
Maybe a previous owner had speakers up there.
