Windshield Header - Bikini Top Mount Repair

I have a hard top that comes off for the summer but my mount holes for my windshield header, where the bikini top mounts, are starting to get elongated, wore out, etc and short of going to bigger screws I'm looking for a more permanent solution.

Somewhere, and for the life of me I can't find it now, I have seen a kit that will let you install permanent inserts in to the header channel above the windshield so you can use machine screws to mount the strip instead using sheet metal screws over and over.

Anyone know about these?

I've checked all of the normal Jeep stores...nada. Quadratec was the first and I thought that was where I saw it but can't find it.

Search the net for Jack Nut, that's what I have used for a couple of years with stainless machine screws

Perfect! I wasn't using the right search terms.

Thanks.
