87 hardtop question

I have an 87 with what seems to be a factory hard top. It bolts up fine in the back, but I seem to be missing all the hardware on the front above the windshield. There's no rubber bits on the corners for it to rest on and it seems like I should have some strip of metal connecting the fiberglass top to the windshield. Where can I find tthis hardware? My Jeep is a noisy wind tunnel at Highway speeds

The rubber seals are the easy part. Go to rockauto.com for those. The metal strip, attached to the top by rivets, screws into the vertical part of the windshield frame. It sounds like this piece is missing, so you would need to fab that part.

I'm missing that strip too. Sheet metal about an inch thick will do the trick
