New Top, Extra parts

Hi all. I've just completed installing a new top for my 2002 986. I bought it from Autotopsdirect. I confirmed with GAHH that it is the same top that they sell.

Everything went pretty smooth except my "helper" removed these 2 rubber pieces and the directions didn't tell us where they need to be reinstalled.


Can someone who has done this project lead me in the right direction? I know they where removed from the front seal corners but am not sure exactly where or how they need to go in.

I believe they fit in the last screw hole towards the back above the side windows. It seals between the two side frames where they fold

My "helper" "thinks" these came off the front seal corners.

I searched online but can't find any reference to these items.

Anyone else have any thoughts?

Ok, 1 last attempt at getting some help.

Can someone post a picture of the seals installed on their top?

Evidently these rubber seals/pieces go between the side frames. I can't figure out exactly how they are inserted between the side frames.

I'm desperate to put these back in correctly and don't want to start taking things apart not knowing where to install them.

Any further help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

No 5 is right

Just replaced my top Friday and that is where the originals were located.
