I just finished installing a top on my '71.  I couldn't have done it without 
the step by step instructions in Lindsey Porter's, MGB: Purchase and 
restoration guide. It's a Haynes publication, ISBN 0 85429 664 6. I found 
that it's not as tricky as the directions would have you believe, but it's 
definitely a two person job.  The worst part was getting the old glue off.  
Mineral spirits will help. 

Two things I learned.  Porter doesn't specify what kind of glue or what size 
pop rivets.  I used Pernatex Black Super Weatherstrip Adhesive which worked 
very well.  For mine the right size pop rivets is 5/32" (4mm) by 1/2" (12mm). 
 They're probably the same on yours.

I hope this helps.  Good luck!
