1994 NAS soft top rear tub snaps - where to buy

I bought a 1994 NAS 90 soft top that came with the 1995 Bestop fast-back style top and belt rail system. I prefer the Tickford look and planned to incorporate the belt-rail system into it, but the upholsterer can't get to the top for months... so I thought I'd run the stock soft top this spring.

I removed the belt rails below the cappings on the rear tub to discover - to my dismay - that the dealership had not only removed the male snaps (presumably to "clear" the inside of the belt rails that mount to the body) - but actually tore them out, rather than drill them out. So, the aluminum is sort of bowed at each hole and actually torn on one or two.

I wonder if anyone has a suggestion as to a source for the male snaps?

Also, might they be available in aluminum so that I don't get oxidation if I choose to keep the Tickford original??

Your local craft store should have what you are looking for. Or McCaster Carr(?) type of place will have it in stock. Not sure if the dimensions are in the parts manual or not.
