Unique NAS/ROW soft top hoop set combo

This is from an ebay ad... it seems to be a combination of the original NAS roll bar + the forward portion of ROW hoop set drain channels... wonder if anyone can point me to the parts involved and - most importantly - if it would help support the forward portion of my Tickford top.

The reason for the support: I've posted a few times over the last two years requesting measurements of the metal support bar that runs through the very front of the Tickford (where the soft top slips into the channel above the windscreen). As it seems to be an unavailable part, I am thinking this will help keep the top from "buffeting" at highway speeds and popping out of the channelling... a major PITA.

That bar is just a piece of flat stock. Go to Home Depot and see what fits inside and paint it and cut it to length.

Are you talking about the gutter kit? Badger sells/sold them.

I have an aluminum piece of flat stock in place... it still pops out. I've tried to locate slightly thicker and/or slightly wider material, but haven't found success - so I'm going to resort to having the local machine shop cut me both options and see which shape holds the top in place.

Regarding the gutter kit, thanks for the direction... I'll try to get in touch with Chris.

Are you talking about he horizontal bar that slips between the windscreen and roll cage that the soft top snaps to and the door seals against?

No. It's a piece about 4' long that slides into a slit in the canvas - from the passenger side - and runs the length of the windscreen at the forward-most part of the Tickford top.

Regarding Badger, I've tried a coupe of times over a couple of years... no follow-up, although he's mentioned having them in stock and would let me know. Thus, my reason to reach out to the forum for measurements. Still no success - probably because it necessitates taking the top off altogether to measure.
