1941-46 Windshield Channel V-bars

I am in the process of procuring items to assemble a windshield for a Deco style truck. A cursory internet search reveals perhaps a couple of reproduction variants of the V-bars. This is the part that slips into each side of the windshield channel to join the assembly together. One version looks to have a slot cut in the middle that appears to be an engineered defect as it seems as though it will eventually lead to cracking? Has anyone bought/installed these lately, and do they fit correctly in respect to angle and size?

Thanks, and I look forward to hearing your experiences.

I used the connectors from Jim Carter. The angle was correct and fit very nicely. Even had the screws included.
I paid $32 (inc. postage) but I see the price has dropped.

As a side note I bought the Division Bar WVT39 from American Classic. At the time it was $69 inc postage. I see it is also on sale for $43.
I can't win them all!

Is a restoration ever finished?
