I moved your post from our "Technical" board to our "Wanted" board to help you find an answer to your question.

I'll help a bit. Uncle and Willys did not make a bikini top meant for the M38 but many manufacturer's made them for the CJ3A and one made for a CJ3A will fit on a M38.

They can be adapted to the M38's track. Many tops just snap to studs screwed onto the upper edge of the windshield. Essentially any bikini top the correct width and length can be adapted to the top of the M38 windshield. What you need to get also is a frame to support it behind the back edge of the front seats.

Here's a few examples:
