My last top boot question (I hope!)

I have decided to try the smaller top boot for my '88 spider from Mr. Fiat. They are the only source for the tan boot.
Of course they don't come with the 12 clips required.
My question....Along with the clips, do I need to also purchase the metal clamps that go with each clip? I know if I had it in my hand I could answer that question, but I haven't found reliable pictures.

I think that I can send you a set of these. I bought them for my car not realizing that I didnít need them. Iíll be back home tomorrow night and will look for them. I have no need for them, so if I can find them theyíre yours. Just send me a PM with your email address and Iíll get back to you ASAP.

Centerline is out of stock with the tan boot cover?

They have it in stock:

Why did you decide to go with the smaller style?

Thanks

Centerline does not have the smaller boot in stock. I know they hare the larger one.
I decide to go with the smaller one to save the $80 I would need to purchase the forks.
Also, I cannot tell if the Centerline top has the fasteners that clip into the two rear posts. So I would still need the 12 white clips that I was trying to avoid with the large one.
