If this is on a Midget, you want 3/32. Get a titanium bit...after 10 or
so rivets, when the bit is still sharp, you'll be glad you did.
It's crucial to get the base of the back snug and stretched tight
side-to-side. The rest of the top can be stretched easily, but the
see-thru windows don't deform very much. Once the grommets are in,
you're stuck with it, so take some extra time with this.
Somebody (can't remember who) makes an aftermarket front rail weather seal
which has a big enough groove that you can use small sheetmetal screws
instead of pop rivets to attach the metal part of the front rail.
This is nice.
All of this stretching and pulling goes down a lot easier on a hot Summer's
day. Of course, you probably want to drive the car this Spring... :-)
