Committing Badger Sacrilege

So I have the Half Cab FDS on my 1994 90 and on the tonneau rear there doesn't seem to be a way to secure the rear end to the tailgate. The sides and part of the rear are converted to the rail system but for the actual tailgate there is just a flap there. It looks like I could put snaps in it and snap it to the rear tailgate. The tailgate itself already has the male part of the snap as it originally was a snap system so I would only need to add 3 female snaps to the tonneau.

Is this sacrilege? A bad idea? Both?

Bill, You are suppose to put snaps on that flap so it can snap to the tail gate. You will need sockets and caps and install one snap at a time. Meaning don't mark all of them at the same time.

Awesome thanks. It looked like it was meant for that, but I didn't want to screw up the top, being that I am typically more wrong than right. Thanks for the quick response!

Haha. I am panicking and it is a used top.

So how did you measure them out? Like did you make them super tight figuring it will loosen up or did you just kind of mark them where they landed?

Mine are slightly loose but still very secure - you'll thank yourself the first time you try to open the rear door with them still snapped in...

I tried to match how taught the top want on the belt rails in the back. Used an exacto blade to make a pilot hole then used a snap tool to fasten.
