cj3b windshield channel

So apparently I am an idiot and cannot find a windshield channel for a cj3b, I scored a brand new top for next to nothing but I need an American cj3b channel.. I even have a part number from best top 256.82 and I can't score a channel. Any thoughts?

Windshield channel? The bolt on one like the super top has or a bikini top has? My 3A windshield frame has the channel welded on the front face of the windshield frame. The top goes over the top of the frame and down about a inch or so.

You can see it on this pic (Not mine) how it goes over and down the frame.

My truck has bolts in the front 8 I believe but to run an American top you have to get an aftermarket channel, it replaces the factory one.

See mine has bolts that basically loop over the windshield frame, all the Mitsubishi jeep tops are this way. but apparently the cj3b top will fit with a channel since it sits more flush with the top of the windshield frame
