My 71 westy is getting a new tent, hinges and wood/paint repair , trouble is the pop top was just sitting on top of the bus when we bought it, barely screwed in. The location for the rear roof supports has 6 different screw holes where the PO had tried to screw it down, and they were just laying loose in the bus.
I would like to put them back where they should be, and install some nutserts so the don’t have sloppy screw holes.
Could someone take a measurement of where the support is mounted to the steel roof?

Not my bus, just a picture for reference
