Hi all, looking to fit some legshields to my new '52 plunger project but the mounting brackets are as rare as..... (insert your own comic gem)

Wondering if anyone has a pattern, diagram or even just measurements and/or pictures. Or perhaps knows someone who has made a set before successfully and might be willing to run up a set for me.

Apologies if this is going over old ground again

All the best

Sooooooo..........

All sort of legshields have all sorts of brackets..... !#%) ¥!&!^#!! ranting

Yet another bleedin' conundrum! 

So perhaps the best plan is to get the right legshields, then fabricate suitable mounts from scratch. Aha! JUST the scenario that I was hoping to avoid - againcry
