Mines done now.. I made my bracket out of a piece of that garage door hanger material like this..

And cut a piece out and rounded the edges down for a piece like this..

I flattened this out and bent it the other way to come up with a brakcet like this..

And The final Result..

Oh and just a heads up for anyone that is just learning about small modifications.. This is a little trick that MANY people use to keep their bolts from sliding up in the sockets.. Take a little piece of paper, or kleenex, or papertowel, and shove it down in the socket to keep the bolt from goin up in there real far, so you have more threads to work with on the other end..

Looks like this..

Then when you are done, you can take a nail or even a stick and poke it back out from the other end.

Thanks Zach for the idea on the mod! I love it, and reception is still fine for me.

Tools used:

7mm Socket
1/4" Ratchet
some cheap-o galvanized material
2 glasses of crown & Pepsi
