For those with 2003/2004 glass top. What does this hook to?

What does this hookup to? One on each side.

Is it attached to an elastic strip like this? It may be this with just a different kind of hook. It's to make your headliner tight.

Looks like someone may have added something to the end of the part you hook to the front of the top when it's partially open so your back part of the roof with the window stays up during engine access. Mine has the fabric with a loop at the end that attaches to the front corner of the top

That's not it. There are one of these on each side and it's specific to the 03/04 top.

It's attached to the rain skirt at the bottom of the top. I believe it's to keep the rain skirt tight, but I don't know where to clip them to.

I've got an 03, original top and I have nothing like that on it. Is your aftermarket? Could they hook to these? There's one on each side.

to OP, that hooks into the small horizontal bar up in the front by where the top pivots, the one JBauer is holding also attaches next to it. I'll see if I can get a shot...

btw, it's not exclusive to the 03/04 tops, the piece in the OP shot is also on my 97 and holds the grey apron down at the front. The peice in JBauer's does the same for the headliner on later tops. They both attach to the same place.

ok, here ya go, attaches to the silver bar...
