No idea on this make of top but it would make sense for them to use the same fitting hardware as the OE hardtop.

Yes, reuse all of your hardtop mounting pieces with the Getty top. You will need to reinstall the front center latch pieces.

For race cars? we don't use the Getty tops. Too heavy. They are designed to latch on like the stock ones.
