I got out my BEA staple gun, (made in europe.) I went on line an only found suppliers that would only sell 50 K staples.min order. I took the gun and a duofast, and a bostitch into a place that does construction nail guns and he had all kinds of staples and in smaller quantity I have only installed 3 factory replacement tops and made one from scratch for My T bucket and one dune buggy. I Had Trim when I was an engineer at ford and the crew did about 50 per day. I watched a lot, speced tooling, etc. They used to set a spacer so the front bow was about a foot off the windshield header to tack it on, when they locked it down it was tight, perfect, they had the most problems getting the wrinkles out of the quarters, I used to have some polishing compound for flexible vinyl rear windows. paint polishing compound might work
