Thanks Rob. I've been in touch with Bruce. He may know of a proper pair in his area. I've got plenty of time. Won't get the Clipper in the water probably until next year.

JR, I have these that Brewster cast from the originals I gave to Jabe.  He wasn't happy with the castings so I don't know if he has any more.  I'm using these on the HawkII but you are welcome to use them for a casting if you decide to go that way.

Invalid or non-existent item ID.I just bought a set of these off Ebay. They are not the exact profile as the ones you posted and are plated pot metal, not aluminum but I am happy with them for the money. The seller has others still.

Test fit on my Vagabond.

Thanks Joe. I think I made something similar inspired by Nick's for the 57 Rocket I had. That will be my backup plan.

Nick made some brackets kind of like that for his Rocket and his Vagabond. I took these pictures one day when I was over at his house.

I am in need of a pair of windshield corner brackets like the ones pictured for my 57 Clipper. Thanks for any leads. John
