I've been searching everywhere for some help so I hope this isn't a repeat. I bought a hardtop for my YJ. Its in great shape except the piece on the rear glass that the covers the lower part of the glass (is cut specifically for the tailgate of a yj) is damaged. I'd like to replace/repair it as 1/3 is cracked off. Any suggestions where to look for a replacement?

I will post a picture asap. I've tried all the yards and most of them just laugh. I have found ten hardtops with no rear glass but that doesn't help. If only quadratec would realize the need for this............
I think what he is talking about id the plastic cover piece that goes over the latch mechanism on the inside of the top. I have the same issue where mine is broken off.

Both pieces really, it looks as though this Hardtop sat with the glass dug in the dirt, grass was growing in between the glass and the pieces in question. What would you guys call those pieces? I've been calling it the latch Jammy whatsit.
I was only able to find one by watching craigs list for over a year.
