Attaching stuff to my A-frame...
What's the best way of permanently attaching things to the a-frame, without having to resort to welding?
I'm trying to mount 2 liferings to the a-frame and although they come with a plastic clamp to attach to 1" tubes (like a rail on a yacht) - mine are 2" tubes and so won't fit directly - they came with a stainless steel mounting bracket/adaptor - but there isn't really anywhere to attach it to!! The only flat bit of steel on the side of the A-frame is where the Nav lights are, and apart from obscuring them, they would look stupid stuck up that high.
The only thing I've though of so far is 2" ss u-bolts and a ss plate to give me a flat that I can attach the bracket to.
Any other ideas?
