Default 65 bikini top

Looking at purchasing the 80/800 bikini top for my 65 Scout. Will this work with the original vacum wipers? Folding windshield?

Default Re: 65 bikini top

It will fit the early fold down frames with the forward flange bolt top as the flange is higher and clears the motors. On the other later non flange type, the motors will interfere with the top, but can be used if you don't mind the top have a couple bumps on top where they interfere. A solution to this if wanted, turn the motors upside down and reset wiper arms to stock position and good to go. This brings the flat of the motors lower then the top of frame, but does obscure the view just a bit on top which I have not found to be an inconvenience and some May notice that they are just visible from front view but don't really look out of place. Only other change is reroute the vacuum lines and the switch is on opposite side.
