Don't do it; you'll ruin your paint.

If it leaks just cover the vinyl roof and windows with a top cover

Exactly what he said. I used a top cover from a Ford StreetKa (second hand off eBay) - flaps about a bit but has only come off once in extremely heavy winds (and with a bit of thought, I could have put the straps in slightly different places so it wouldn't). Kept the water out of the car but flaps about enough to maintain airflow round it. Have also heard one for an MX-5 fits well but I've got a funny feeling all small convertible ones below a certain price point are the same size..

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Car caps in nylon are available from £6.99 on ebay and the like. Don't be tempted to use anything else at any price, regardless of the promotional blurb promises.
