? Any Photos of early 70's curtain attachment hardware?

I can't seem to find any photos of how curtains were originally hung in my 72 ambassador. I must be using the wrong search terms. The hardware is long gone, and a PO hung some metal mini blinds.. but those are now trashed too.

Can somebody direct me to some pictures of how the things are mounted? Were there supposed to be rails with slider tabs sewn into the curtains?

I'm lost... please help. pretty please?

Here's the inside of my '72 Tradewind. There are aluminum tracks built into a valance on top and an aluminum rail on the bottom. At the front window, the bottom rail is similar to any of the style you'll find at Home Depot or Sears. The top, if I recall, is an extrusion that might be more difficult to find if they have been removed. The side windows all have the extrusion, top and bottom, and the curtains are attached with plastic tabs that run in the extrusions. I hope this helps.

Thank you! That's exactly what I needed.

All I have are screw holes, and your description & photos explain the wrap around the corners that wasn't making sense.

Let me know if you need any better pictures. The trailer is in my back yard, so it is no problem at all.
