I`m getting a 1/4 tonneau cover installed. My car never had one. The 2 straps that come on it, do they support the header bow? or are they used to hold the side curtains?

There should be two snaps on the “wall” of the package shelf area. The two straps extend from the tonneau cover and snap to the rear wall and sort of keep the top from bouncing around.
My car never had a 1/4 tonneau. I just wanted to let my upholster know where to put them on the wall.
FWIW - I have both the 1/4 tonneau and full tonneau. I use my car as a daily driver (SoCal) and RARELY use the 1/4 tonneau. I have the full tonneau on so that I can cover the interior when I leave the car parked unattended. 2 reasons; it covers the interior and its contend from public view. It keeps my seats & steering wheel from getting too hot from sitting in the sun.
Here is the method I use to fold the top when not in use and full tonneau.
100,000 miles on previous VS and 43,000 miles on current VS, top and rear window still look as new.
I hope you find this info helpful.
Once again, Jim shows how it's done!
