It follows the RB profile. The only difficulty was to ensure that the top part matches the two factory side plates.
At this point Pete640
provided all the help I was needed to make the plate. I would like to thank them both for their help and I hope that I can return the favour in the near future
I was worried about the side web welding, so we welded both sides of the webs. There is also intermittent welding behind the sheet bends in order to ensure that if any cracks decide to initiate at that point, there will not be a catastrophic failure
This looks very stout!
