Default Replacing top - need some semi-urgent advice

I need to drive the S soon and I'm stuck on a couple of pieces of the top install.

1) I dropped a rivet off of the softtop frame rail, it's the one I'm pointing to in this picture, it was drilled in this location and fell out the back. It's not obvious in the trunk or below the brush area, I searched with a magnet, mirror, and flexible camera. Is this a find it at all costs rattle nightmare? I've spent quite a bit of time searching already and haven't found it. I was being very careful and put tape underneath to catch it, which worked for the other 3 but this one got away somehow






2) I'm putting an EZon Cloth top. Do the roll hoop bolts on the back need to be removed like in the guides? All of the guides I've seen are converting from plastic to glass window, but my window was already glass, 2008 MY.

You’ve likely moved on with the install by now so this response is likely of no use.

The rivet, ont worry about it. It will settle in somewhere and be of little concern.

The roll hoop hoop bolts I assume you’re referring to are the tonneau cover posts. If your car is an 08 than you should only have two there, not 4 that are present with the 00 and 01 cars which would require the installer to remove the 2 inner ones to avoid breaking the glass window when converting form plastic to glass. No action required here either.

Thanks! Yes, it is helpful. I bailed on the rest of the install and decided to take a Lyft. Hurrying through and ending up with a rattle would have been royally stupid.
