Okay, last one for tonight. What goes over the area with the two large holes at the top of this trim piece?

If memory serves me correctly, that is where a piece of velcro goes to help hold down the convertible top. I'd go outside to look but it's dark and I'm being lazy. I'll check tomorrow.

Yes it's Velcro, but it's reinforced with a steel strip sandwiched between the outer velcro and fabric backing (just like the 2 pieces on the inside edge of the deck panel that have the 3 snaps). Delta doesn't have these, however the soft top frame uses 4 pieces of this material (sans steel strip) in lenghts of 6" and 11" (2 of each), that retain the side of the top in the area of the door glass. If you order a single piece of either of these sizes you can put a pieces of steel strip between. Clamp the pieces down and drill the 2  x 1/8" holes.  This is what I did on #15851 just a few days ago as the old velcro was looked tired and shabbyon this restoration.

As an alternative, I bought some industrial strength velcro (with adhesive backing) at the local True Value Hardware store, stuck that tightly to the chrome trim and put the screws in.  Sticks great - so far so good.  Also at the same time replaced the velcro on the soft top where it connects to the door jamb.  John.
