Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: 23 Roadster top, missing brackets

I have a 23 roadster and it's missing the top and all the brackets that go with it. Looking for some helpful pictures if anyone has them so I know what I'm looking for. I could be wrong, the car already has a few incorrect parts, but I'm looking for the back brackets that go through the body for the top to rest on when down rather than the ones that hang off the top of the body. Also, which brackets are used up front where the top pivots. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is a picture of the front pivot brackets. Ignore the square nut threaded on the bracket.

The rear bracket isn't too difficult to find. There is a pair on ebay now, but they are expensive. I've found them at swap meets for $3 or $4. There is a right and a left. The front one on a '25 twists around and is bolted to the striker plate, and probably the '23 does too, but it may be a different length. The body parts book probably tells? There is a right and left on those too.
