1. Hard top to windshield issue

    Hey fellas, I'm a newb, but was told this is best Jeep forum on the net...9 months ago, I bought my Dad's huntin buddy's 85 Cj-7 for $3000, only had a tick over 38,000 original miles, as he even thru in a brand new Howell throttle body kit in its entirety...Anyways, I've owned a 49 Cj2a, a 58 Cj5, but never had a hard top, so I'm havin a problem where the top meets the windshield frame...mine has a piece of flat steel that's literally riveted to the top and windshield frame, joining them together...well, it did, but all the rivets are broke off, and now I can see daylight thru there when I'm drivin my rig...is this supposed to be this way from the factory? If not, what do I need to repair this correctly? Thanks for any advice fellas, every response wil be much appreciated....
