Need Picture of UltraGuard installation

If anyone has a UltraGuard Rock guard/mud flap installed off the back of their motor home, could you please send me a picture.
I took mine apart because the angle iron the guard hangs from got bent and could not be straightened.
So I bought a 1.5" x 1.5" x 1/4" aluminum angle iron, laid out the bolt using the holes in the guard as the pattern. So far so good.
Now the dyslexia has kicked in along with the migraine, so I am not sure if I have it backwards or upside down.
Any way if I could look at a picture showing the UltraGuard mounted using a piece of angle iron off the back of the coach it would really help. It mounts to the frame of the tow hitch by 2 3000# carabiniere's that are bolted directly to the hitch.

Confused, frustrated and in sever need of a cold martini, maybe 2 tonight
Thanks
Dean

TheToads......I will tell you from past experience, the aluminum is not a good idea. It's nice that it's lightweight, but it will bend twice as easy as what you took off.

I've got the OEM flap on mine, but the angle iron generally mounts just like an "L". If you were looking at the flap from the side of the coach, the top edge of the angle iron would be mounted to the top edge of the flap and would look like this "L" from the side. By putting the horizontal portion of the "L" on the bottom, you can bolt your lengths of chain thru the rubber and angle iron.

I chose to bolt the UltraGuard directly to the angle iron instead of using links of chain. I was afraid the air movement under the coach would keep the flap raised too much. The angle iron was bolted directly to the bottom of the coach.

This isn't a picture of mine, but one I found on the Internet. It has an additional metal plate perhaps for more weight.

I used 1 1/2" square metal tubing to mount mine. Mounted it to the hitch with U bolts then secured the ultraguard with lag screws. I found the end caps for the tubing for a finished look.

I mounted mine so that the angle was a down facing "L". I than drilled the holes for bolts. I bolted the chain to the angle. You could run the carabiners through those holes too. I'd post pics but don't own that coach any more. Sorry.
