New ACME Top Owner needs Advice

I'm looking for a way to mate my top with my tub without drilling holes in my tub. I was hoping to use the clamps typically used for truck campers - but - my top has no lip to grab the clamps. Any advice? Pics would be a huge help. TIA Scramblers

If you search this site you should find pictures of clamps that Acme used. They are available from. McMaster Carr. I believe they were riveted to the body when the tops where first produced. I bought some clamps from Acme 25 years ago. Still have the part # and receipt but that would do you no good.

Check McMaster Carr for these spring clamps Barry is referring too.

I bought these for my Grizzly hard top good quality but don’t use the foam… it’s garbage.


Mine does not have the lip on the top and so far it’s held in place really well. The clamp fits perfectly under the tub lip and the top comes down tight and doesn’t seem to slide around. Only 300 miles on it but there were some washboard roads in there.


I actually just searched based on the Rally Top part number and found the dims and order a similar clamp.


Same seller also has a 6 clamp version that I went with but only used 4.

I've always had good luck with nutzerts. I like the way spankrjs did it on his white one.
