It's all stainless steel ball joint hardware very easy to take down. It will fully remove and only have the small mounting points in the windshield and the back. Or you can disconnect from windshield and fold back.

Absolutely fantastic work, though we have come to expect nothing less from Jim at Viper. I was really resisting adding a bimini to my '77, but now I have yet one more thing to add to the never-ending To Do List. I'm sure there will be a way to adapt that attachment method to other style windshields.

Could you show a close-up of how the forward support mounts to the windshield? What a huge improvement in looks. I am really impressed with the innovation.

Frustrating new find

I will take some more pics soon. MAN just when you think you have a perfect install.....I find gelcoat chip and a crack where they didn't drill pilot holes for the mounts. Not happy at the moment.

I was visiting with Jim the other day and saw your bimini, nice looking job. I noticed the Radar sticker on your boat also, If you'r ever in need of another skier pm me for my contact info, Im always looking for new ski friends.
