Incon strut tower notch plate, who can fab one up?

Hey guys, I am buying another Incon TT kit but this one is going on my 95 cobra. The only problem is i am not getting a notch plate with this kit. Does anyone have a clue to where i can find one or if anybody can make them. I can not make one myself because 1) I wouldnt know where to get the steel 2) I cant bend steel 3) I dont have a welder. So any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

The directions had a picture with measurements, if it does look in the phone book under automotive-fabricators. It won't cost much. Myself I use my local Vocational High School and talk to the welding teacher and they only charge me for materials and gives the students great practice.

You are going to have to know how to weld to put the plate in once you find one. Of course you can always just pay someone to weld one in and if doing that then you probably could pay to have a plate made as well.

Since the small measurements are hard to read they are:

The pie shape cuts are 1/4" in from each corner. The width of the strip that gets bent all around is 1".

I have a plate made out of thin sheet metal that you can use. I was just messin around one night and made one in a vise. It's not exactly perfect, but it'll work or you can take it to the machine shop.

The one I used in my car I went to a buddies heating a cooling business and used his metal bender to make it out of thicker stuff.

I havent really turned the wick up on my car. I'm still running 6 degrees timing and only 8 pounds of boost. It runs pretty good even though its turned down.

You can use the plate if you need it.
