I'm wondering if the Mk3 soft top will fit on a Mk4 (pn 12020). I'm trying to sell mine and I've been asked if it will.
Thanks.

The dropped butt mod I did to my MkII made the rear body similar to the MkIV body. You can see the gap from body to bottom edge of the hard top increases moving rearward from the door area.

Prior to the mod the gap was an even 1/4 inch or so all the way around.

I have a Whitby Mk3 soft top that I installed on my Mk4. As Jeff said they are not exactly interchangeable.

I had to lengthen the aft cross frame to allow it to clear the roll bar. The change in body shape causes the side window shape to change and the side curtains don't seal at the upper back corner.

That's okay with me as I plan to make my own side windows out of plexiglass. The supplied ones have a very small window area and I am 6 feet tall and have a degenerative disease of the spine that limits my flexibility. Have a hard time seeing out the side for traffic with the curtains on.
