soft top installation help

I bought a soft top off a 86 CJ and it didn't come with any instructions so my question is where to put the snaps in, and where to drill for the roll bar looking thing. It's an original top, I think made by Whittco. I went to the dealership but they couldn't get a manual and don't know how to go about getting the info other than measuring another Jeep. Can anyone take measurements or possibly sell me a manual or anything. I'll try and wing it if nobody knows but I just don't want a bunch of extra holes in the body from not having the precise measurements and having to redrill holes.

Re: soft top installation help

I have the same problem I bought the top last year but haven't goten around to trying to install it yet, need to get it running first. I don't want to drill my tub so I got some stick on marine snaps that I want to try. I know you need a windshield catch bar but not much else.
