Here are before and after shots. Hopefully, I've slowed the rot down and will get several more years out of this frame. We'll see.
I never, evah thought that could be saved. Ya done proved me wrong. Again.
And I-Maiden, My brother did the old 4150 pound, insta top chop, @ speed. And an angle. I need new one too!
BTW, ordered the striker/hinge kit. I'll let you know how that works out, and thanx for the generous feedback. Make me a cash deal on the grab-bar as is, and 5.9 louvers? I'll deliver the q-tec w-frame free when I go for mine!
