So this is the front bracket for the first bow. The rear bracket has a smaller channel that fits inside that connects to the third (rear) bow. There are 3 rods (2 horizontal, 1 vertical) that connect the windshield, first and second bows. Straps connect the second and third bows. I hope this helps and I can take a pic of the rods connected to the windshield and bows if you would like. On my jeep the inside edge of the brackets mounts flush with the inside edge of the tub.
