Soft top retaining/check straps repair

anyone know the exact measurement from bow to bow or rivet to rivet for making new straps, my old ones are too tore up to get a measurement. I have seen measurements for the strap length but it does no good without the actual rivet to rivet or center to center of the two bows.

When I did mine I put the top on then pressed up on the rear bar until it was tight and had my buddy take measurements. Worked perfect.
