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

The wire bits not used with LC LJ. And as a guess the first one near front screen is missing.. Are the 2 smaller ones same size? Can measure a set tomorrow

Hi Paul,

if you get stuck I have a set still in the hood lining but out of the car I can photograph and measure.

If they are LC LJ then they are from 4 door. The 4 door has 3 lengths. The middle 2 are the same shape and length. 2 door has 4 different shapes and lengths.

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

Need clarification here as Marty’s front two are the same length, which is incorrect according to the part numbers that Bazza shows.

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?

Hi

Part number would be different as rods are different shapes even if same length

No.

Only under roof lining around rear quarters.
