Hello all,
It appears that at some point in my '68 convertible's past, the welded bracket used to mount the lower control arm bumper was removed from the passenger side of the frame rail. No idea why. That being said, does anyone know a good source for these? I've contacted All American Classics about this but was wondering if there was an alternate I could go to in case they don't have anything. Attached is a pic from the driver's side in case I wasn't clear enough about what I'm looking for. Thanks for any replies.

You have two options try and find someone willing to carefully cut one off of a parts car, or fabricate one yourself out of ten gauge flat stock and weld it to the frame. Something that size can be bent up in a six inch bench vice using a big hammer. You will need a cut off blade in a die grinder to cut the pattern as ten gauge is too thick for tin snips.

Thanks Big Dave. I'm an engineer by trade and have access to 3D CAD. If there is a 2D part drawing out there for this I could get a vendor to recreate it. I'll check the assembly manual and see what I can find.
