    Make'em yourself.
    I made mine from 3/16" brass rod from the hardware store, then put clear caps on the ends.
    I don't know if there is any business that makes them for sale.

    I think he is talking about little rods that are about 6" long that you put between the car and the T-top to prop them up for car shows.. so they are still "on" but ggive it a show feel.

    I won one at that show as well though....lol I do hate the way it looks with a bra, but my front end still looks awesome after 60,000 miles so the bra will stay on when I am driving on the highway.
