Vinyl top Trim Help

I just purchased some trim. Now I need to know where to drill the holes. Does anyone have pictures of hole placement or and dimensions are where to drill? Thanks

I'm planning to do the same with my 67 Chevelle. What company did you go with for the trim? Are you happy with it?

How are you planning to terminate the edges along the drip mounding?

I found some originals. I'm not sure how I'm going to terminate them. I was hoping someone would have some pictures.

Owning a Chevelle project is like having a giant-size piggy bank that you keep pouring money into....but you can't get it back out.

When I disassembled my original 67 Malibu, the long green clips were only held in place with one screw.
