    Howdy Folks, does anyone know where i would be able to source a replacement support bar for a T3 Trakka poptop. There are two supports for the poptop when lifted, the internal gas struts, and an external steel bar which runs diagonally down to the top/front of the car (i've attached a photo). I need to replace the external bar which has rusted.

    If i could just get a replacement part it'd be great (including mounts where it hinges), otherwise i can find a metal fabricator to make something up.

    Cheers.

    Someone mentioned a bloke who used to work for Trakka when they were making the T3, thought he'd be a good person to ask, but i can't find the thread. Have called Trakka, they no longer stock this part.

    Have found a fabricator who can make up the parts. If anyone else needs one, group buys are usually a good option..

    Ok, if anyone needs a replacement Trakka pop top support bar, a VW specialist in Annangrove Sydney can fabricate and replaced them.

    hey janus77, how did this work out?
    i've got a 1990 syncro trakka with the same problem and i'm about to start a re-spray so need to fix the roof at the same time.
    any chance you could give me an idea of the price to expect?
    cheers.

    It's worked out great, works perfectly. Give Andy Ho a call about pricing.

    Just a question about the front support bar .is it a one piece item ,if so to fit is it a matter of lifting off the total top as it looks like the pivot points are secured under the front fibreglass.
