I feel your pain. But I wasn't too concerned as the tub of my other 40 was in rough shape. Think about it and let me know if you decide you want to fool with it. I know that 066wally said that he used his Kayline to make his own rear bumper / tire carrier but when I asked him questions about how, he didn't return any of my messages. I am leaving town on Thurs 5/20/10 and won't be back until Sat 5/29/10. I should be able to check here and email every so often but I wouldn't be able to think about shipping it until I got back.
