G'day guys and gals. I dragged my roof lining rods down out of storage today and realised I think one is missing. The set that came with car has 1 long, 2 short and two sections of twisted thin wire (not sure what relevance if any they have). I presume one of the rods is missing, but not sure what length it is. I searched other threads on this forum and it appears 2 door rods are different from 4 door. Does anyone know which rod is missing from my set as I hope to bend/shape one up from same thickness wire, or have a photo of a 2door set so I can "guesstimate" what length rod I need to make. Also what sequence do they go from front to back and which 2 holes do they slot into (ie top or lower of two along roof rails/pillars). I checked manuals but they don't seem to cover roof linings. Thanks in advance, Paul

I think they go in order shown front to back
couldn't find tape so pics
different shape ends,
first 2 same length third one is longer by about 10 mm
if you are making one really need one to copy

Thanks limo, its a good start. Marty if I could impose on you to photograph and measure the ones you have it might give me something to work with in making the missing rod from the set, seeing as I wont have one to compare to or trace off. Thanks for helping a brother out in advance, paul

2 door bows are all different lengths, 4 door have 3 different lengths with the 2 in the middle are the same.
I would assume workshop manual is correct....
What are the 4 lengths of the 2 door bows?
