Yes, it was good to talk to him about it. I knew right away it's for the function on the bikini top and not added safety. I think he mentioned having the stock rollbar arm drilled out and the mounting nuts welded in place??? (I recall that maybe)I messaged Erik a while back about his extra hoop and he said a local shop made it. Hadn't seen a close up of how it bolts on. I would imagine the factory roll bar was 'threaded' to allow bolts to attach. Super clean look. I really want this exact same thing. Would be nice if someone could mass produce this! Or at least make me one!!!
Of course this would be for the family bikini top only, not for added safety. In our previous PM's, Erik did refer to it as a faux roll bar and stated it is cosmetic only.
