    7018 is that the rod you used? Crank the heat up to 175 and you will get better penetration.

    Yea i thought about doing a type of bumper hinge like you drew, but you cant see in the picture, but there is a bolt welded to the side with the spreader stand that keeps it from shifting side to side, the strap was quick to tie it down securely, takes less than 10 seconds to put it in the rack and strap down.
