That should not be hard to make for a good bodyman with the proper tools. Having the right tools makes almost everything easy. JB

Start with 2 boards (above and below) then stick a bunch of C-clamps on it... it will straighten right out.

Any luck?
I was looking at some scrap steel I have in the corner, and I think a small piece of "C" or "I" would do it if you were really intent on cutting that old piece out.

We are in the same boat corey. Someone wrapped a chain around it and bent it to hell and the rear mounts are rusted through.
