so here is an update. simply cannot find the brackets (although there are some boxes in the attic with O-guage trains I did not check).... but I thought, hey, I am an ngwclub member, I'll make my own (sure helps now seeing what I need)
straight stock bent... sure helps to have a vise, anvil and hammer... and a rod connector with a hole drilled for the top rods.... I will run in a bolt from the outside to tighten against the rod.
I cut an old inner tube to but between the headlight ears and the hose clamps to protect them. got the left side on, but my garage door faces west and the late afternoon sun was killing me, so the other side will have to wait.
also turns out the top rod is just a smidgen larger than 3/8 so I'll need to enlarge the hole just a wee bit
