 This idea is taken from the 1986 Japanese Tamiya Guide Book.

The basic idea is to add a second support bar behind the stock roll bar, and make a canopy that is fitted to the new bar and to the Wild Willy body.
To make the roll bar you can use a 1 mm steel bar and bend it to shape according to this sketch.

The canvas need to be cut to shape according to this sketch. All measurments are in millimeters.
The white areas of the canvas is to be folded to the inside and sewn, for reinforcement.
The middle fold should cover the newly made support bar, between the stiching and the canvas.
The front and rear folds are to be attached to the front windshield and rear of the bodu for example by using 2mm screws.
As an option you can add the rear window in tha canopy. Use thin clear plastic and glue to the inside of the cloth
