Hi Listers!

I have a couple of questions...

1. I have purchased and received a new stainless steel exhaust system for my 
'66B. How do I join the 3 sections together? Do the hangers perform the dual 
purpose of attaching the exhaust to the car and clamping each section the 
next? Or, do they require welding? If so, can I use the 40mil diameter, 
flux-core steel wire in my MIG welder or do I need something special for 

2. I'm considering buying the Sunfast cloth top that Moss has on sale. I 
believe this top (P/N 242-990) comes complete with snaps installed, header 
rail and anchor bar. Does anyone have any experience with the fit of this 
top? I was just wondering if a better fit can be achieved by installing the 
header rail myself thereby custom fitting it to my car and to my frame. My 
header rail, by the way, is a real mess and will probably cost me a few 
bucks to restore (new seal and retainer, new latches, etc.)

3. My tonneau cover is original, relatively sound (the trim around the edge 
needs to be sewn), but the red vinyl is very faded and stained (with what, I 
don't know). Can the color be restored? Also, in a recent thread on this 
topic, someone mentioned that they had an upholstery shop recreate their 
tonneau. What kind of cost are we talking about here? I was considering 
bringing my old one in and having them make me an exact replica (with 
plastic zippers, apparently, right?), but I have the sneaking suspicion that 
this might be an VERY expensive proposition.
