    My passenger side hat channel needs a section spliced in before I can start making the dog house over my new T18. I don't need much and the section I need is easily accessed without removing the tub. Basically need a clean section of floor with the attached channel in approximately a 4-5" diameter from the body mount bolt. If anyone has a tub they use for parts I would gladly pay for that section. If you only have a good channel but a bad floor thats OK too. Just need that channel to be solid so I can get it bright and shiny and welded in.

    You can buy just the hat chanels from ebay vendors for the front flat fenders. They are shaped to follow the contours, but there are straight sections that may be long enough for your needs.

    Thats all I need...a long enough straight piece. I don't think the local steel places stock such a thing and my brake won't bend it that tight.
