I just got my 85 S&S last summer and I am in need of a Bimini top for next summer.

I would like to know what height, fabric, tube diameter, width, color, stainless vs vinyl fittings etc. Any of you guys have a good one that you could recomend?

I am going to mount the main cross bar to the bottom of the windshield frame. Any suggestions on where to mount the straps? I was thinking of mounting them to the rub rail frame rather than drilling fiberglass. Picture would really help....Thanks!

Your boat--do what you want. I would not mount anything to my windshield. To replace a windshield in these older boats is a real pain. When I mounted my bimini top I actually measured the height of where I was putting the side mounts in the fiberglass to the height I needed to be able to stand getting up from my seat. Low and sleek looks cool but being able to stand up and still have some shade was important to me also. I then got a top to fit. Don't skip on price.
