I will look and see if I have those.
Yes, the ones I have look to be and inch and a 1/16 c to c on the holes.
I bought a bunch of stuff at Hershey years ago as left over from a convertible restoration, also got round brass vents he said went in the seats somewhere. If these will work I can send them to you.

Hey Deuce,
I won't be able to check my snaps until late tonight.

The brass screens were "vents" for the back rests (front seat) and were installed at the bottom. They are not visible when the seat is in the "normal" position.

Are those break away snaps? The 46-8 have break away's on the rear sides and they are just impossible to find.

Those are the "self releasing" snaps. I got mine from a local auto trim shop. They are sold by LeBaron-Bonney !-800-221-5408 . Unfortunately they don't aways release as the top is lowered, and should be pulled with the rest of the snaps. I found that out the hard way.
