A brilliant quickie fix-

And I thought I'd heard it all...

just the clips!!!
i used a jigsaw to get the shape just right!
my buddy that owned his own trucking company laughed his ass off when i suggested it and then freaked out when we took it for a test drive and he slammed the brakes on going down our hill and skidded to a stop!!!

Very Happy

she told me 8 months later that she drove with it that way for over 6months!!!

When she needs dentures, she will know who to see!
