When the rag-top was installed, the upholsterer did not install the snaps on the back. This because the leather boot had not been delivered, and he was concerned the boot might arrive with snaps pre-installed, and he wants them to align.
In the event the boot arrives without snaps, does anyone know how many should be installed and where they are placed? I do know about the snaps in the end rail cap, but the many photos have shown different snap placement.
Additionally, I'm not sure I understand the purpose of the snaps. Are they there just to be able to anchor the boot, or is there another purpose? I say this because the tensioning cable seems to do a fine job holding the top down to the body of the car. So do the snaps just penetrate the fabric top to facilitate the boot anchorage, or do they penetrate the body of the car? If the body of the car, then my holes were leaded by the body man.
