Default Vinyl Top Install

When installing a vinyl top, does it go over paint, primer, treated bare metal or does it really matter?

Normally I'd paint the roof, I supose you could install over expoy primer but I'd paint it --don't install over bare metal you'll get a real problem with rust forming !!

Over paint. Even epoxy primer will get weathered as the vinyl top "breathes".
