Slatgrill body gusset

Post by JeePa » Thu Mar 01, 2018 5:43 am

Work progressing on body of my Slattie. The body gussets have attachment tabs on their bottom edges that are in bad shape. I can find replacements gussets but not the attachment tabs. The gussets are in good condition otherwise. The repro body I am working with has body gussets without those tabs. I cannot remember removing bolts from the tabs when I disassembled the Jeep. I could fabricate my own they look simple enough. Ideas?
Thanks and Regards, JeePa

Is this what you need. If yes possible Jon at jeepdraw has the dimensions looks easy enough to make.
