I have a set of what I believe to be M38A1 top rails - those 3/8" diameter rods that span the distance between the front top bow loop and the windshield. The rods I have are about 39 3/8" long, with one end being bent at 90 degrees with dimples and cotter key holes, and the other end kind of shepherds hook shape. The bends are in the same plane.

I need a set of M38 rails, which I understand to be about 35 3/4" long, with both ends bent at 90 degree angles, in the same plane.

Do I have my facts about right here? If not, set me straight please.
Thanks, Jeff

PS: Sorry, the Ether-Gods are not letting me upload a photo to my gallery to link to this post tonight. Twisted Evil

Thanks Gary and Wes - I may just modify my M38A1 rods by shortening them accordingly.
