On my Midget at least, the tonneau just clips in place onto existing
fasteners. It takes about half a minute or so...isshhh.

I have head rests though my tonneau does not. Like you I have removed the
retainers so they can be removed- works OK for me. When driving alone ('when
my other half has pinched the GT) you can keep the tonneau fastened up over
the passenger side which is quite nice because it keeps the heat in on
colder days. 

A tonneau is good in the height of summer as well to avoid getting the seats
too hot - thus avoiding a painful shock if you are wearing shorts and your
legs come into contact with those hot vinyl seats.

Incidently I read the other day that Green King Brewery here in the UK might
be taking over Morlands, the brewers of OLd Speckeled Hen. Hopefully this
won't be the end of this fine bottled beer (always better in the bottle than

I'm thinking about getting a full tonneau for my '71 B. Do you tonneau users

out there like them? What's involved with the installation? Which make is 
best? Should I get the tonneau without the headrest pockets? I'm concerned 
that the pockets won't line up with the way I have the seats adjusted. I
the locking springs out of my headrest stems so I can easily remove them. I 
could stow the headrests when the tonneau is on. Anybody doing this? Thanks 
in advance.
