Default 1936 3 window head liner bows

I want to change the head liner in my 35 3w to 36, I have the long metal bows but need some pictures and measurements where they mount? All of the original 35 tack strips are gone. Thanks in advance for any help. Walt

Here are pics of my 35 3W bows. Funny I only have three.
First bow measures 45 1/2 inches second bow 50 inches third bow 45 inches.
First bow is 6 inches back from the front tack strip second bow is 13 1/2 inches back from that one and third bow is 16 inches back from the second one. I measured bow entire length tip to tip( not across opening).

Here's a pic I took of the metal bows on my '36 3W when I was replacing the top. I made a 2nd set of bows for one side (the other side is a mirror image), but they're in storage right now, waiting for my new shop to get built, so it'll be a month or so before I can find them.
