Wanted: Parts or patterns for 1932 Essex Convertible.

I am looking for parts or patterns for a 1932 Essex convertible top and seat. I have the front header and most of the side pieces. I am missing the rear side pieces with the latches that lock the top into place and the bows. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have a few 32 parts I would be willing to trade including a pair of side mount buckets if anyone would like to convert their car to dual side mounts.
So in researching wooden top bows for my Holden body 28 Essex I discovered there were only 3 or 4 top manufacturers. By that I mean only 3 or 4 independent suppliers of tops and bows to the industry. So while there were many different tops most of the parts can be interchanged with slight modification. (specifically length of support pieces). What I am getting to is measure the bows and check the model A and model T parts suppliers. I found the 54 inch wide bows for the model T were identical in shape and size to the 28 Essex. I did need to trim down the ends to fit into the supports. The ends can long and had to be tapered and cut down. Got all four for $100. At that price I can mess up a few.
