Re: Vinyl top molding clips
Rear windshield clips are different than front. At the rear there were little studs welded on the pinch weld area, then clips that attach to the studs. You will have to weld on studs or buy the little screws that act as a stud. I believe Ashleys for one has them.
On the front the top of the pinch weld and the bottom of the pinch weld had the little welded on studs, again you can weld on studs or buy little screws that act as studs. Along the sides the clips were held on by screws. If you buy the correct set of clips you will have 6 clips held on by screws and the remainder held on by studs (or fake studs that are actually screws.
The vinyl top also is held in place by 2 screws at the front and 2 screws at the back.
There is a good post someplace on TC showing installation of the vinyl top, if your interested.
