    I am from Missouri, so Ill reply! I would go with snaps or snaps and velcro. Snaps can be bought at a fabric shop, convertible top shop, craft shop etc. PM Grim-reaper, I remember him saying he had bought a bunch of snaps and the tool to install them.

    Cloth stores will have snap installation kits.
    May folks will take a old hard top and cut the top up so they can get the seal sections. That lets them put the snaps in that instead of the sheetmetal.
