Default C/B Curtain Rods

The curtain rods were removed from my 1962 C/B, when it was sold to the second owner, by the man that took over the funeral home. I was told that he thought that it would be easier to sell that way. When I first purchased the car from Lloyd Ray's estate, I contacted the funeral home, and asked it they still had them, but he had thrown them away. I have since acquired some from another C/B, but it wasn't a full set. I am in need of the following pieces, preferable in chrome plated steel, and my second choice would be aluminum, until I can find all the correct parts. If the steel rods are rusted, that will be ok, since I can have them re-chromed as necessary.

All dimensions are overall length, including the cuts for the slotted posts.

2 pieces 53" long (quarter glass lower)
1 piece 36" long (rear door upper)
1 piece 39 1/2" long (rear door lower
1 piece 30 1/2" long (side door lower)

The pictures below are of a 1962 Pontiac hearse that was photographed for me by Rocky Fluegge in August 2010. This Pontiac was completed 1 day before my Chevrolet, so you might say that they are cousins. I was amazed to see how different the same operation on this car was done then on my car. Rocky's attention to detail has helped me immensely. These pictures will give you an idea of the type of curtain rod that I an in need of. If you have some that are longer then the above dimensions, I can cut them to fit.
