Window Studs For Soft Top

Any suggestions on where to find stainless steel windows studs for a NAS D90

I found some on http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/9784.cfm but there are too expensive for my taste and budget. I took off my windows today (first time on my nre D90) and found that they where very rusted.

They'll all be pretty expensive. I believe they were on sale for a few months on AB/roverparts.

Don't know if this is now out of stock, but as you can see not much savings. I believe I saw as low as $88 about a month ago (and I think that was AB). You'll also want the quick nuts though, so budget another $50-80 USD.

This says 110, but does anyone know anything about it? Not stainless of course...

Thank you all (again showing how wonderful this forum is). BTW, I had looked (and Googled before I posted... even tried Bing). I spent a few hours in class searching while my students where doing a lab ;-) It's just that I was hoping someone here might have some ideas on where I could get a better deal... it seems a bit steep 100$ for such small and simple parts. Make me wish I had access to a machine shop, when I worked at the dry dock, I probably could of gotten them made for a bottle of Jack.

I do have the quick release nuts already. I had bought them when I had my previous NAS D90 and had an extra set that I kept when I sold the truck.

I think I will get original studs (steel) for now. I'll see with RN if the 100 ones at 10$ fit, otherwise I can get some from the UK.
