Default 1934 ford tack strip

What is a good material to use for the tack strip. I have some vinyl tack strip material but it is not the right size. I tried to glue it in with 3m emblem adhesive and it is not holding very well.

someone else will chime in here but my original tack strip on my 34 uses what looks to be rivets counter sunk on top side. Ken

I used hard leather belting I installed the top 3 years ago and the tacks have held with no problems.

Where are you placing the tack strip?

The original material and its metal channel was originally riveted to the groove around the perimeter of the opening in the top. Small screws, etc. would do the job as well.

Steve, did you post something in the past about putting the metal enclosure around the leather? I seem to remember something.
