These brackets look simple enough. 2D from flat plate.Cad isn't too difficult to learn and you can get LibreCAD or FreeCAD and draw these with a little experience. Then modifying them will be easy. AutoCAD is a great program but way too expensive for common use. There are more free or user priced CAD programs out there depending on what platform you use, Linux, Apple, or Other. Thanks for the share.Bob - 1971 MGB-GT

Bob,Thanks, I'll look into that. It's frustrating trying to find someone who is willing to help, even if I pay them.

Not looking for payment. If I can help my email is bobharper (at) bigpond.comI am interested in the mod and would consider doing the same to my 1971 MGB-GT. It was a US delivered car that has been converted to RHD for Aus by changing US parts to Aus parts.I also have Lathe and Milling machine, but old eyes.

Details received. I'll see what I can do this week. It loaded up into LibreCAD without any issue, so editing shouldn't be an issue. I'll see if a friend can advise if I need anything special for a water cutter pattern, or flame cutter etc. Holes may be best drilled for precision.CNC cut is also an option.

Bob,I misplaced your e-mail. I finally got a chance to trace out the bracket and add in the radius values for the bolt holes without all of the other clutter. Please send me an e-mail and I'll send the tracing.
