(1) rubbermaid cart

(4) holes in the cart in a square on center with the mount holes.

(1) twisted stay

(1) mint stay

(1) homemade caliper

(1) 6 inch ruler

(1) welding rod or straight wire


So I forgot to take before pics...trust me it was A twisted sister :eek:

Once I put bolts through the cart the stay bases were brought parallel and square I needed to remove and grunt often so they were not bolted down.

Using a big marker I bent a u-shape to the end of the wire and began referencing points on the mint one and marking the wire.

After using the cart handle for a (soft) twist anchor the next step was the two big radius sections and referencing my wire marks.

The next step was using the home made caliper to reference the pem nuts.

And finally setting them both on their backs and typing a post.:D

B.T.W. Tim your stay is fixed :D

Very nice job!

I tried to bend a steel one back once. I had a comalong hooked between the stay and the receiver on my truck. It didn't work.

...and I though brute strength was the answer. I fixed a subframe with 2 ratchet straps, a breaker bar, and my hands.

However, if I see an RC51 with a tweaked stay, I will definitely reference this thread. I've seen two during my time coaching on base.
