Make yer own! The material wouldn't have cost much - $60-70 CDN pesos, had we had to cough up the cash. Aluminum (the stuff we got, anyway) is very easy to work (soft).

We could have bought one from an EV supplier for roughly $150 US.

Yeah, I guessssss. Not gonna fool with serious fab work until I go EV.
