Windshield Pads and hold down clips

Post by signsup » Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:16 am

M29C weasel brush guard windshield pads and hold down clips I need some photos or images, please. I look through my manuals, partslist and Google and just can't find an image of what is supposed to go into the holes on my brush guards.
Picked up a fantastic windshield frame with all the canvas top clips on it and I presume some sort of blocking goes on top of the brush guards to prevent the clips from bending with the windshield down.
Also discovered two holes in the side of my brush guard that I presume are for some sort of hold down clip. I can't find any reference to originals on the interent, so will have to fabricate something close. But I need a starting point.

And guideance greatly appreciated.

I really need to get my hands on a weasel that someone owns or is in a museum that would show me what I have and what I am missing. Planning on a parts run to CA, Or, UT, CO, KS, MO, AZ in early March. Museum in Nebraska Heartland shows they have one. Any other that you guys know of?

Thanks in advance.

Here are photos and specs from previous poster. And, a photo of the one I found in my spare parts box. Alas, only one in the box, but two tandem wipers minus arms and blades.

I mounted my one clip on the passenger side of the brush guard and it looks like it needs some sort of spacer for it to bolt to the adge of the guard and clear the rivet holding the side support brace for the guard. And, it appears that there would be a left and right clip, reverse images of each other to latch and have the tab at the bottom hang out and over the edge of the guard to have something to grab and release.
I may try to have these reproduced, one left and one right by my fabricator and make them available. I understand they are a little tough to find originals.

If you have these reproduced I would be interested in a set - mine was missing everything and I built a guard but no clips or pads yet

I used the rubber pads from the M37. It is the same size. The pad on the M37 is located on the hood brace that the window, when folded down, rest on.
