I bought one of the Qld made 2 piece units some years ago.  Here are the fitting instructions that came with it.

I have lost the lower bracket.  Does anyone have one of these and could they make a template to send to me please?

Cheers

The brackets I got with my two-piece one were strips of 0.8mm stainless, 16mm wide. The end of the strip is rounded off, and a hole drilled for the bolt. I replaced the brass bolts with nylon ones as they are less visible. The strips were about 3" long, and get bent (simple 90-degree bend) and trimmed to suit. They drop down between the door metal and the door belt.

In the photo below, my bracket has slipped out (probably because of my fat elbow leaning on the windshield  Grin) and is sitting between the door belt and glass.




Cheers,
Harv

Thank you all ! My quest to find a weathershield for the ute has been successful as I mentioned earlier in a post. Again the combined input was sensational. Cant wait to meet more of you when this wretched COVID allows at a club run or meeting. Just a postscript auto cable in qld who use to make repos offered me the business when I was making enquiries they have approx 500 moulds machinery etc to produce weathershields for many makes 50 k. Could be a nice little cottage business if you have a spare shed and the time.
