WTB: 68 Vinyl Top Stainless Retainer Strips

This might be a long shot, but I'm looking for the stainless retainers / keepers / strips that clip down inside the drip rails on top of the vinyl top on a '68 (or '67). As seen around 10:36 in this video: https://youtu.be/O5rcixwWueQ?t=10m36s

Knowing that, Randy will cut you one whale of a deal... Heck I think Randy's might even be free. So will Don have to pay you to take his?
