Defender 110 soft top - a "how to assemble" question

Dear all,

I'm driving a soft top 110 1996 model (TDI300).
i bought it 5 years ago with a local soft top made (in Israel); the guy which did the soft top did it while using straps to close the soft top all around the vehicle, instead of using ropes on the hooks.
BTW, my 110 is equipped with a 6 point to the chassis role cage, front is external.

now, i do not know for sure how the original works and fits on the vehicle so:

a. can any one of you upload pictures of how to close a genuine soft top with the ropes and ect? I do have the original hooks on the body.
b. are there bars at the bottom of the Canvas sides which are part of the tight method?

post a pic of the roll cage because it might be the same as a wolf or tithonus. if that is the case then you can find pics on the web.

If it is the rope type then the rope hooks into clips that are on the sides and then goes around the rear. I use to loop mine on the rear cross support. The rear flap had elastic straps that connected to the clips at the rear. The rear flap had ropes that you could thread closed.
