I think I can get a truck toolbox I'll see if I can chew it up. I'm limited to my bosses junkers.

Check if there's and cracks on your support. If not try new bolts. If that doesn't get it tight heat the support arms with a torch and hammer them upwards. Re bolt it WITH LUBE and you should be golden.

Pat, do you still have the Black magics? if so, are you going to use the covers? If not, I'd like to buy them from you for $10... if they fit my regular 500's.

⅛ inch. I'll use a propane torch and a hammer. If this one works out its all yours if you want. You'll have to paint it.
