Default !932 Roadster/Phaeton top iron parts

I,m just wondering if certain parts are available for my 32 Phaeton top irons.
I have a set of top irons that are missing the front corner piece that slides over the windshield post ,
The front top bow also attaches to this piece.
Before I fabricate the pieces,I thought I,d see if that piece was available.
Thanks

Karl,


Dumb question, but here goes. Will there be only a single attachment to the header bow per side?

I photographed the top of one side and the bottom of the other, the web on the bottom of the casting shadowed the header mounting screw location.


These are drilled/countersunk for 5/16 on the inboard holes and 1/4 on the outboard holes as per the originals I examined.


I attached another photo for clarity.


The holes for attaching to the irons will have to be drilled.

Karl,


Thanks for the clarification (I assumed as much, but some might not.)
