How is it attached? Glue? Sewed? Velcro?

not my car ... but a Florida car

appears to be glued or some sort of a heat bond ..

I'm trying to determine just how common this sort of thing is. research says it is fairly common on Mustangs .....

I had a VW rabbit vert for a long time in FL - it was one of the first cars with fixed glass in the cloth top and I never had this problem or heard of it

our 15 R-59 is already on top #2 ...... this raises my eyebrows a bit ....
