    How about fabbing one out of stainless. Polished up it looks like chrome, won't rust. or use countersunk washers? just an idea:hyper:

    Give me a detailed plan of what you want. I am a welder/fabricator and i can do that for you for FREE. The thing is i'm in canada (quebec).

    I would need all the details: thickness, width, lenght, hole placement, hole sizes........ i can do it out of 304 stainless from 16 to 12 guage, maybe even 10. I'll pollish it eventually so it don't look like stainless counter tops. It'll be chrome-like and as greenman said, wont rust.

    PM me

    >>>> You are too kind! I was able to make one out of 16ga. stainless today. Took a couple hours, but it came out real good.

    Cheers,

  7. Good! Hope it suits your needs!
    16 guage is a little thin don't you think? But hey, six bolters don't need that much thickness

    I too have look in all of the main venues, there seems to be no 6 bolt neck plates left on the planet.
    Of course, any information leading to the location of the hole that they are all buried in would be greatly appreciated.
