When I tried the same mod on my own earlier, IIRC, I found them at Lowe's. Either that or Home Depot, I can't remember 100% because I know I went to both - one of them fits VERY nicely (just a little tapping with a hammer). I actually found two sizes of U-channels that would fit inside each other (from the same store) to do extra reinforcement. However, SeeeeYa's machining skills (he sent me a kit) are WAY beyond mine.

I did find his kit rubbed on the driver's side front, as I expected it might (it's a REALLY tight fit there) so I didn't install it there (I had not yet tried mine there, so I can't say if there is any solution). Trying to make a "fits every variation out there" kit is tough.
