Anybody here broke one?
I pulled in to a rest area somewhere in southern TN just in time, got out and saw my driver side front fender sticking out about 4 inches. I had a semi spit a large turtle out at me the day before that I ran over on that side is all I can figure did it, then I guess the screws in the fender rattled out.
Stupid brace has 2 holes in each end and very little metal around the unused hole, that's where it broke.
I found some plumbing strap I had used to secure an ac capacitor in my tool box so I used it to get me home along with duct taping the top.
I can't find fender braces with lengths listed, they all seem to be model specific for cars and trucks.
Don't like the plumbing strap solution.
Thought about taking it in and getting it welded and having them weld the unused holes shut, it appears to be aluminum so I can't weld it myself.
Also saw I can buy a piece of aluminum strap/bar at the lumberyard for next to nothing. I could drill holes in that and bend it.
What have you all done or would do?
