Don't worry about that box @fishfiles, we don't need it. I can send ya another one... get those bolt centers and I'll make a bracket then send it to ya along with another box then you can work the bugs out of it. That sound OK?

At this point I shouldn't need another box , we know where it can go ... shoulder is 90% better today , I was nervous for a while , thought it was going to be the rest of my life hurting

LOL. Sounds like something I would do....on both parts.

Hope your shoulder feels better.

retro I sorted through my stash and found a few pieces of extruded aluminum that will work there. We can go with 135 degrees angle, or a 45 degrees angle, or any angle close to those two figures. So the mount type is no problem... just need ya to measure between the inside of one 3/8" bolt to the outside of the other 3/8" bolt to get the bolt centers.

I can make a bracket and take pics with it on the back of a new box when its done, so you can see how it looks on there?

If we use a 45 degree angle bracket the wiring would come out through a hole in the bracket which should work pretty good... a 135 degree bracket would accomplish the same thing though... in either case we could add provisions for a wiring support loop there (usage optional), like I did on my Rancher mount.

retro I'll see if I can find a piece of aluminum that might work there too.

fishfiles Retro , those 3/8 bolts in the pic are going to have to be the mounting point , underneath the plate where the toggle switches there is a tube , it is going to take a piece of angle iron but on about a 45 degree angle and out the bottom with the wiring is going to be the spot --------I am going to try and fab something up using the sample box you sent
