Ira,    Seriously?!?!   I'm offended!  I don't "cobble" anything together.
There is nothing "cobbled together" in putting a two seater rear shroud on
a BT7 - using a factory 2 seater shroud and the  factory support brace.
The shroud is a direct bolt on affair. I did not cut anything or modify
anything other than to add the factory shroud support brace over the wheel
arches.  And even then, I did not weld it in. It is riveted so it can be
easily undone.   Here's a photo so the listers can judge for themselves if
I "cobbled" it together.
