C- clamps? I used these on mine. that way you have just the hook piece rivetted on the windshield frame when it is removed. I have two one on each side. http://www.amazon.com/GeTech-6020-U1...177654&sr=1-22 This is just what they look like. I dont remember what size and strength I got but they are not that big and the sun visor hides them when the roof is on. I used the one on the left.

Ok. I think I'm just gonna take the top off and leave it off. That way I don't have to do anymore holes and I can just patch them. My back hatch on my hardtop is bent and then I need 2 seals for the windshield. Below windshield and above for hardtop.

I think the clamps for the top are the least of your worries at this point

You're asking price is too high. Drop it $1500 and maybe...

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
