    I made this for my '71 , not sure if the dimensions are the same for your tub. It wasn't that difficult to make. IMG_3506.JPG IMG_3505.JPG IMG_3504.JPG

    IMG_3508.JPG IMG_3507.JPG It's just cut from 18 gauge and broke on a box brake . The rounded corners are cut out before it's bent and the edges are left long. After the edges are bent to form a triangle the extra length on the ends are formed( bent ,hammered,cussed) around the radius, welded and ground.
