    They normally clamp down onto the drip rails @ the top of the A pillars did it come with alloy clamps and a few bolts on each end? If not u will need to get some for it.

    some clamp onto the drip rain and others use screws that go through the drip rail, depends on the style. Use stainless screws if you drill the drip rail and a touch of barium chromate paste on the threads to stop rust.

    I used some old screws I had in a jar - bad error, the screws quickly rusted and will need to be replaced as the damage seems to be spreading. :umm:

    Guard on my Type3 is held on by self tappers x3 on each side ...... pop rivets give you a bit more space in what is a tight gap :eek:

    Funny you should mention the tight gap - when i first got my kombi - it was held on with self tappers - in second image you just see the friction damage they caused before they were replaced with Rivets .

    Do you need to support the centre somehow?

    Not if its an original after market version of the '70's unless its and after, after market version that were made slightly wider , these had provision for a center support bracket , as I understand.
