I purchased an original side curtain compartment to use it as a template for my TDr. The original is metal and I am making mine out of masonite and will cover it in vinyl. The top of mine will be hinged and secured with a strap in the center with a snap connector (similar to the convertible top snap) in the front. The original does NOT have the top part.
As soon as I’m done with mine, I am willing to ship it to anyone who would like it. I expect to be complete with mine next weekend. PM me ion you would like it.
