On my 40, I used very small diameter square drive screws everywhere except across the back above the window where the hide-em goes. The heads were small enough that they fit in where the rubber covers and hides them. That way if you ever need to remove the rain gutters for a new top or to fix something, it doesn't destroy the rain gutters. Also on the metal of the cowl, a screw can draw it up tight without pounding on it.
