Clamp 1.JPG
Clamps153 viewsI found these at McMaster-Carr. Part No. 1590 A43 Draw Latch 302 SS, 1 3/64" Latch Distance. The catalog states # 6 hardware will fit but I had to drill the bracket attached to the windshield out to 5/32" to get # 6 -32 screws into the holes in the windshield post. A 9/64" hole was big enough for the screw but was not quite wide enough to fit the holes in the post.Mar 24, 2006

New Designed Aluminum Parts134 viewsThis is another picture of the window brace mount and its hardware. Note the countersunk holes in the main mount and the counter sunk stainless steel acorn nuts to hold it in place. The aluminum would require washers to protect it agains a nut, this would leave little stud for the nut to tighten on and possibly leat to a stripped thread. With the counter sunk arrangement the nut has full thread on the stud and does not need a washer. Also shown are the new designed main clamps made of all aluminum.

Aluminum Header114 viewsThis is my new design header made from 1/8" x 1 12" x 1 12" aluminum angle. I made a jig to form the curve to match the top of the windshield frame.

Rear Bow Connection119 viewsThis image shows the connection of the rear bow to the supports that bolt to the mechanism. I am holding a mirror to get a bottom view of the screws in the same picture. The screws do not go through the bow, this allows the top of the bow to remain smooth (less chance of undue wear on the fabric).

68 - Header Lip Seal79 viewsThis shows the header lip seal. Note that it is attached to the corner fill brackets under the ends of the header. When the window recess is finished it will have a snap here on the out side and another on the inside that is not shown here.

The two at the top of the picture hold the back tight from side to side, the three in the middle hold the front up to the main frame, the two on the left hold the outside of the end cap, the next two hold the inside of the end cap and the two on the right hold the outer corners of the front to the outside and back to form the inside corners at the end caps. The top of the picture shows the trim around the top cover.
