hmmm, maybe a fishplate or two? Might be hard to find a good solid base on that frame though.

Yea, what Cutter said. Buff it out, slap a little Rustoleum on it and it'll be good as new...maybe better. You may need some duck tape as well.


I've seen a 30' dump trailer do that..............loaded going 60 mph down the highway! Messy, too. I gotta start keeping my camera with me more often.
