#1...one of the screws had fallen out of one of my top latches. Is there some kind of captive nut in you head rail that I might be able to finesse into place, or will it have to wait for a top replacement?
#2...my vinyl top is virtually new, having been replaced by the previous owner. It doesn't fit well over the windows, with the flaps needing to be guided to the inside of the glass as you raise the windows. There seems to be an abundance of material gathered at the front. Can I adjust this? I know that the cables are for this purpose, but how do I get rid of the excess in the front. I hate the way it fits, but I don't want to trash an otherwise good top.

IIRC, the fabric is glued to the front rail - usually with contact cement. Done right that glue is tenacious. If you can carefully/slowly get it off without tearing the fabric then you can re-glue it for a better fit. If...

Here's a link to the top installation manual. It should show you what needs to be done.
