New to the jeep world (87 YJ)

Hello everyone...

The wife and I just got ourselves a 1987 YJ. First wrangler either of us have owned so we are both pretty excited. It has a soft top with half doors...4.2 I-6 5 speed manual. Body has no rust anywhere (which is hard to find in South Florida where people usually tow boats and jet skis with them). Mechanically everything works including all the factory guages and even the a\c!

The only piece i need (and I don't know what is called) is a piece that connects to the windshield snd over the passenger door where the soft to snaps on to. It is broken so the top flaps around in the wind which is a bit annoying! Anyone know where I can get a replacement?
