Windshield post

I'm trying to return the windshield to two piece with a center bar. Presently the windshield is V butted. To date I've only been able to find the inner and outer rubber and the stainless outer trim. I'm in need of the weld in center bar and the inner garnish molding. I also need to know which piece of rubber is the inner and which is the outer. Seems everyone who V-butts their windshield discards the pieces I'm looking for. Making the weld in bar should be easy IF I knew what the original looked like. It also looks like I'll have to make the inner garnish molding too. Can anyone provide me with measurements of the two pieces (and pictures) I would be happy?

Do you have the outer moulding? The inner garnish should match the width of the outer, and should have the shape of the inner side garnish pieces. Something else you may want to consider: there may not have been a center division bar, other than the inner, and outer trim pieces. hence the four piece rubber; Left, Right, inner center, and outer center. Hand there been a center post, there would most likely have been two rubbers, left and right.
I've also run accross a windshield with a one piece rubber, left, right, and divider in the center, all one piece. No center divider on the body. IIRC it was a 52 chevy sedan delivery.
What are you working on?

Oops, should have included that it's my 1939 Chevy Master Deluxe. I have been able to check a '40 Olds and a '50 Chevy, and of course they are very different. Both have weld in center post and that's about all they have in common.
