Measurements of Early CJ5 WS fold down brackets??

I am trying to get measurements for the brackets that bolt onto the windshield frame the support the frame when the windows is folded down. I am going to make a pair to go on my frame. What i need is the metal thickness and height of the bracket. Or does anyone know where i can get a pair from any restoration services??

Re: Measurements of Early CJ5 WS fold down brackets??

They stand off about 2.5" and are 5.5" wide (center of the bolt hole to center bolt hole). The material is 7/8' wide but necks down to 5/8" by the windshild channel to allow easier installation of the top. I use webbing like the one on the grill that mates with the hood. You can get all this stuff, by the way, at Beachwood Canvas, they have a web site with the pert. info.

Hope this helps,
