    I bought the snaps to do my soft top at a local uphoulstry shop. They are heavy duty usually for canvas tops for boats. you can also get them in the fabric department at Walmart. How are you making your soft top. I made one of my own but I would like to change a few things about it. Here is a picture of it,

    I purchased mine at a boat shop. Be sure to get the stainless steel version. They cost a little more, but you will not be replacing them any time soon.

    I got the snaps I used from lowes and sears. Neither had enough and I had to drive around town. Both snaps were the same and it was cool. Lowes sells them in sets of six and sears had a variety pack of 36 I think of which 18 I could use. You can also buy the peices individually from different hardware stores.

    How do you make it so that it doesn't leak where it joins up with the roof?

    Stuck? Yep, I'm always stuck!
