Drape rail placement in twin Overlander

Hey,

The PO's of my Overlander took out the bottom rail for the drapes in the middle twin section. Does anyone have a picture of where & how they are mounted? I have the rails (bought them from ebay), but am unsure of how to mount them. Beneath the rails is a 17" section of fabric, but I sure could use the help in figuring out how the rails were mounted initially.
Thanks in advance!

Becky,
In my 75 the bottom rails are actually a 3" wide aluminum extrusion that goes from bulkhead to bulkhead just under the windows. If they took the old ones out you should be able to see the holes? Let me see if I can round up a picture for you.

Edit: I lied to you It is the '80 that has them just below the window the 75 has them further down about 5-6" and actually puts them over the pad. The ones from the '75 the forward bulkhead is out, but you can see the mounting rail. The one with the blue striped window cover is the one from the '80.

Were they mounted so they looked like a 3" ledge sticking out, or flush to the wall? I couldn't find any holes that matched up to the rails I have, but that may be because they didn't come from my coach. They are the right length, though.
