Most of the guys wind up cutting a piece of metal from a large sedan or minivan for that..don't know of anyone who makes that piece..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Not that I know of. Most guys make thier own. Some use a doner roof like a mini van or a station wagon. I bought a shet of sheet metal and made my own ...........I formed the slight crown in it by using a couple of 2x4's and a oxygen bottle.
