Default 1935 trunk support specs

Does anyone have the measurements on these? I don’t think anybody reproduces these and I would like to try and make some. I’m talking about the brace that goes from the floor pan up to the lip of the trunk on each side.
Thanks,
Ralph

Oops! I guess I should’ve said these are for a three window coupe.

I don't have measurements, but here are some photos someone posted a while back.

Thank you Don!
That helps a lot, I guess I can estimate the width by the mounting holes. I also assume the dimpled area is where the tool tray mounts ?

So this is what it came with, always puzzled me why they moved the supports to right behind the rear of the top/ window.
Also used some screws through the body, which look ugly to me.

So with all this time on my hands I decided to go ahead and make these. I did have a small piece left over from one of the old ones. So I used this as a measurement for the channel. It was a total of a 3 inch wide piece folded over a half an inch on each side leaving a 2 inch center section. I had a local sheet metal shop bend the channel in the basic shape. Then I used a duckbill pair of vise grips and my press to shape the channel for the mounting surfaces. On my very rusted out floor I guesstimated the original spacing on the holes was 2 inches. Of course then after looking at the top portion of the original mount I was able to measure the original rivets at 2 3/16 inches. I will have to wait until I get my new floor in to make a correct measurement but right now it looks like the length of the support is 21 1/2 inches.
I also have to take into consideration that the trunk surface is angled downward there for the support has a slight angle to it as well.
