  • making brackets?

    Hi Marcelo - On Dave's advice and after reading your post again (great pictures!) I'm leaning heavily toward having a go at fabricating the spacer brackets as you did to fit to the stock 1960 firewall bracket.

    Couple of questions - How long were those pieces and do you think 1/8" thick steel would be too thin? Would you have bought a piece of 1/4" if you didn't have that hitch looking for a new life? I'm gonna have to buy something and I was figuring 1/8" should be fine but maybe not so looking for an opinion?

    Thanks!
