I have had my TD for 50 years now and when I restored it in 1967, I put snaps
around the back edge. This has provided me with a quick way of getting to my
luggage behind the seats. I have also devised a cabriolet top by folding up the
rear of the top and snapping the edge onto snaps I installed on the top frame.
This works beautifully and allows me to keep the sun off my head while enjoying
a free flow of air sides and rear.
