What do you do when you can't find parts?

The funny part is the fact that I tried to make up the right side cover first.:D

The hard part will be doing just as good a job on the other one.

The sheet came from my local TSC. 14g 8x24" for like $9.00.

No,,,, Greg's correct.

Trailer phase 3 may commence next week.

I would like to get new springs and fenders, maybe next year.

I sctually need to use the trailer here in a week and a half, or so.

I have some plowing to do in Dad's garden.

Original question: What do you do when you can't find parts? My answer: Call bear and take a walk thru the parts barn, then if I don't find what I need, make it. :):D

I have an "Armstrong" bender.

I used the edge of my steel top table.

I made the offset bends with the 4"x8" piece of scrap I cut off the end of the sheet.

I used an orange plastic hammer to pound everything out and to keep the creases straight.

For some of the pounding, I c-clamped the sheet to the table.
