Plastic part to join windscreens and sidecar cover

I own a Vetter Terraplane sidecar.

I need to find the part (or to adapt something) which joins the front windscreen and the side widescreen of the sidecar (see pictures attached).

I also would like to add a cover to ride under rain with my kid. Any picture or idea how to do it?
Thanks.

I can't help you with the parts, but I will share a tip: To keep the cracks in your windscreen from continuing to travel, drill a very small hole at the terminus of the crack.
Good luck.

The picture looks like two pieces of "J channel" glued back to back. You might want to check out this...

Scroll down to "trim for connecting panels" for a start but poke around, you might find something you like better.

Good luck!

Or maybe search the web for anyone selling small quantities of H-channel.

This is just an example, I have no info on this company so I can't comment, positive or negative on them.

Thank you for your input, I will check that.

I have a Terraplane also ( a new acquisition ) it has aluminum channels, maybe shower door? I'll try to get a pic and post it.

You don't say where you live but, if you around water, take your car to a sailmaker or canvas shop. They'll be able to make and fit a soft top for your car.
