Just got my first Jeep

I just got my first Jeep. It is a 97 Wrangler. I really like it but am going to have to do some little things to it to get it how I want it. One of the things I am really having a problem finding are the gas strut mounts that go in the rear window of my hard top. It just has holes in the glass right now and I really would like to get it fixed. Any idea where I can find those or ideas on how to make my own. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I do need the strut but the part that attaches the strut to the glass is what I am having trouble finding. If it was on the site you attached I did not see it.
