Question Robbins soft top issues...

When I got my little red miata, the previous owner had installed a new Robbins top on it. The top looks amazing, however, the front corners of it don't seem to be seated. There doesn't look to be any spot for a screw or rivet, do I just place glue on it?

The attachments are gone. Go to the advanced edit view on his message, look at the attachments window, and there are none. The embed links are therefore pointing to an invalid source.

No idea where they went, unless he deliberately deleted them from the UserCP. I've not seen anyone else having attachment problems recently.

Getting back to topic, my recollection is that the front corners are not secured by a fastener, they're expected to just be pulled back under tension. The Mazda service manual specifies that double-sided adhesive tape is to be applied all along the front header bow when the top fabric is installed:



Contact cement is sometimes used in aftermarket installs. Often, the replacement top fabric will include a small bottle when purchased.
