VW Golf Cabby Mk1 - Retrospectively fitting a hydraulic roof

Guys,

I need some help.

I have a 1993 LHD MK1 VW Golf Cabriolet.

I want to retrospectively fit a hydraulic pump to automatically operate the roof.

I have a pump, the hoses, the console switch a wiring loom.

What else do I need and does anyone have a wiring diagram or photos of how to do this please?

Pretty Please :)

Thank You all and very much appreciated
Cheers

yarp roof frame is different, plus you need to cut out all the hydro motor/ram brackets from a donor shell and weld them into yours

the frames are different you will need to change your roof frame or do a fair bit of tweaking to allow the manual frame to work with electric roof gear, from memory the electric rams locate to part of the frame you do not get on a manual one

Sorry, i know not what you to hear
