These are the loops that the factory built with your car, down the side and around the back. Some cars have had these removed to facilitate the installation of a poorly designed hardtop. You must have these on your car to install a convertible top. Must be screwed in place before painting your car. 15 pieces on the outside and 4 loops on the inside of your car.
