Top Bow Measurements...

Post by kb1zq » Sat Mar 22, 2008 7:57 am

I know this has come up before, did a search and could not find it...

I have a set of reproduction top bows, they do not come with the holes drilled in them for the rods to the windshield... I need the measurements from the pivot point to the holes...

Thanks...

Thanks Ken,

I made the top rods but needed the dimension to allow me to use them...

Reviving an old thread, I need to put these holes in my top bows. Is the 25 3/16 center to center ?
Thanks
