Used soft top - what nuts and bolts are needed?

Hi all,
I just recently acquired a 98' tj and have begun to equip it the way I want it. I found a good deal on a well used factory soft top for $50 and it came with all the hardware except the bow brackets. I ordered those from the site everyone suggested here. The top did not come with any small hardware like bolts and screws. Does anyone know what I would need for the factory top?

I saw an Ebay auction for quick removal bolts for like $8.75delivered
Soft Top Quick Removal Fastener Kit Jeep Wrangler TJ:eBay Motors (item 330119770647 end time Jul-31-09 20:32:08 PDT)

Anything else might be needed??? I could not find instructions for doing a factory top install from scatch to see if there is anything else missing.
It did come with the door surrounds and the trunk bracket.

Thanks for any help!!!!!!

We make that top, but we don't sell it or support it - Chrysler does. So your local Jeep dealer may have a parts kit for the top.

Our customer service people may be able to help you figure it out. For a top we do sell, like a Supertop, we have a little nuts-n-bolts kit. But I doubt we do that for factory.

It might be worth a call anyway. 800-845-3567.

I had to replace these on my Jeep also...I got them from the 4 Wheel parts store in my area. Think they were $12. Easy to install...just a few screws and you're done.
