Marty,

Any idea why some have multi-rivets and some only have two? could it be a 1968 thing vice 1967? Thanks.

Thank you Ricky. Is your two rivets system seem to be working holding down your vinyl top (it looks great by the way)or would you add more holes and rivets if you were replacing the top?

Thanks

I am not sure but thought the two rivet style was the external SS one?
We do not see very many original vinyl roofs.

I didn't even know it was there until someone with more knowledge than me pointed it out. They were intrigued by it and studied it for a while. It's pretty tight and from what I can tell does the job. It's getting close to 8 years since resto

A stampede is louder than a heartbeat!
