  • Rear body mount

    The sheetmetal channel at the back of the Wag has collapsed. It was like this when I bought it. I have boxed the frame crossmember and reinforced it. When i bolted the body back into place I set a 14" section of 3/16"X2" bar stock inplace to reinforce this and when tightened the bar stock bent So I spent several hours scrounging around the metal dealers in the area and they all have metal way to big...2"X3"X1/4" angle. Overkill !!!

    Any ideas?? I may have to go to a metal fab shop and have something bent to fit. There has to be a better solution...Help!!
