I have tried everything and I can't get the freaking drip rail moldings on. I have a vinyl top, so I need these on the car baddly. Trim shops around here WONT do it, because they say they don't want to be responcible for them. So how do I get them on? Is there a trick to this? I have tried tapping them on with a rubber mallet gently, but I don't want to bend them...... any other ideas?

I did mine with a rubber mallet. I clipped the top side on, then hit with a downward/inward motion. This is a PITA job as they are easy to tweak.

Good Luck

I used a wood block between the mallet and the drip rail molding. My car does not have a vinyl top so I can imagine your job being even more difficult. Good luck!

IIRC, this issue was discussed at length previously on this forum. The "search" may turn up some additional info/hints on how to install it.
