Default Rear top wood question

We got the 28 tudor missing darn near everything , so it was a big jigsaw puzzle with most parts missing. I have searched but cant seem to find a relevant picture of what goes behind the metal triangle bracket in the top rear corners . Some of the top wood came with it some was missing ,which we fabricated. Some had nasty black mould. Thanks.

The rear wood is actually two pieces that sandwich the body lip that folds downward into the car.

Les Andrews Volume 2 has pictures and instructions to install the wood.

Unfortunately we do not have that book , and probably with terribly slow delivery to down under would not get it for maybe 3 months. But will search for the book . Am waiting on some rear gears they took 8 weeks to go from TX to chicago domestic then 2 weeks to go from chicago domestic to international, then dang it all they head for Dallas international, now after 10 weeks they are In Tokyo???

We have ordered the book , but by the time that gets down under i am sure we will be done.
I have tried to post a picture of the wood top bow by the centre metal roof rail but upload keeps failing , does any on have an image of exactly where the centre wood bow goes in relation to the metal bar? Ok finally got one pic to upload , still canít get the others so hopefully youíll get the idea. On the HAMB uploading is a cinch , maybe pics are too big for here??

I was thinking the Tudor had the same bracket as the coupe . A short curved roof bracket one on each side with a wide roof bow ?
