A view of the inside rear quarter, with the top mounts
Here's the 'folding top base'
I'm guessing this bracket holds the top on.
Another view (sorta) of the entire mount system
The windshield frame on this car looks identical to my targa
Here's an example of a late-model(C2) top - this won't work without major surgery!

Detailed pix of the mount
Pix of the inside portion, showing the factory reinforcement and
'cup' for the fasteners.
Early targa windshield frame
I have a top - now what?
Factory conversion instructions (thanks to Erick Wolfe)
Before I got started, I tested to make sure the top really would
mate up with my windshield. It did - perfectly.

Removing the targa bar cover
Removing the targa bar seals
Removing the targa glass - careful! It's heavier than it looks!
Ready to cut...
Point of no return - we're committed (or should be...)
There's a series of screws which hold down the outer trim -
these aren't immediately obvious, as the whole thing is coated
with rubbery goo.
Test-fitting the roll bar
Took it out for a coffee run the next morning
Here the mounts are lightly tacked-in prior to a test fit of the top.
Committing the welds.
