Default Help: Saleen tonnaeu cover hardware

Guys i found a saleen tonneau cover for sale and im wondering what should all be included with it as far as hardware goes. I can clearly tell in the pics he sent me that seat belt bolted to the cover in the center is their but i wondering if thats all that is needed to hold the cover down. I thought their were bolts etc around the perimeter of the cover where it sits on the trim. What im basically asking is how were these things attached from the factory as a saleen. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks and have a good day!

The one on my 04, has 2 metal tabs that slide over the trim moulding lip in the back, then there are the 2 straps that clip in to the belts. That's is. No mechanical fasteners. Only other detail is a wire with an 1/8" mini connector, that is the connection for the "3rd" brake light integrated into the style bar.

Default light bar hardware

The cover referred to in the above comment was only offered in 04 so I am guessing this is not the set up first spoken about, but possible. Oh and first off, there is a 94-98 style tonneau and a 99-04 style. But they all fit the same and are interchangeable 94-04. OK, the reason for the extra hardware on the side of the tonneau is due to not having a light bar which actually keeps it from sliding forward. Now, if you do have a light bar you don't need that extra hardware on the sides...you only need the belt...and the 3 flaps on the back end of the cover to clip if you will, under the rear convertible top trim. If the tonneau comes with those L-brackets on the sides you can keep them or just drill the rivets out. Up to you. Then there is the rubber trim that surrounds the underside to make it look nice. Post some pics I like to see new pics of verts :)
