I can't help with the fabric source, but the attachment to the windshield is via the channel that runs along the aluminum frame. The fabric has a flexible plastic (if I remember correctly, maybe metal) rod sewn into the leading edge. You insert this long leading edge into the windshield frame and then pull open and back the bimini framing and secure with snaps located on the outboard side of the gunwales near the rear seats. Cheers

I've seen them attach four ways:

1. Channel as described
2. Snaps
3. Metal clips
4. Plastic clips

My dad's '63 Westfield had the channel.

My '66 Niagara has metal clips, although the side curtains attach with snaps.
