Dome Lifters Gone

Does anyone know where I can buy or how to rig dome lifters for an early 60's Astradome?

I got a new cover from VTS, but there are no lifters and I have no idea how to install it.

Currently, there is a sheet of textured plexiglass screwed & siliconed on over the opening on this 1963 Globetrotter.

Thanks for any help!

A photo of what is left would help us understand what you need.
I replaced the lift arm in my 1999's bathroom fan a few years ago. I found the part at Etrailer.com.

Maybe there is something hidden

So upon further investigation, the inside is covered with what looks like a cover to a florescent light. I'm still not sure what's glued on the top.

I have an old lift mechanism/light fixture combo, but not the size or type of yours. Sorry!
I do not know of a source for the one you need.

Hope this is helpful! >>>

Inland RV has the correct "Astrodome" for 1962 - 1971 years and the cranks/roof vent opperators as well. FYI those (cranks) have the same size threat pattern as the old glass door knobs.

The previous owner of my 64 Safari had made ours into a florescent light. I have corrected that, thanks to Andy at Inland RV.
