Windshield Visor Installation on 56' Coupe
I recently purchased an accessory exterior windshield sun visor / sun shade for my 56' DeSoto Coupe. I have the two main pieces together with the center clamping device and covering trim. I appear to be missing the clamping hardware used in between the center and the windshield posts to support the visor. I'd appreciate knowing of a source for these or receiving a photo of what they look like so that I can fabricate something suitable. Also appreciate any form of installation instructions.

I don't have any extras, but here are some reference photos I took when I was in this stage on my '56. There are four of these smaller pieces, two per side, and one longer piece in the center. Basically they screw/rivet into the roof (you can clearly see that hole) and then there is a screw hole on the front for the screw that goes through the stainless pieces. You might try John Fowlie at Big M Automotive for these pieces. http://www.bigmauto.com/
I hope this helps.
