So...after replacing the broken torsion bar with a quality unit from SwayAway...the driver's side hinge RIPPED out of the fiberglass lid!!!
Turns out...water had gotten inside the fiberglass where the outer "cap" and inner "liner" join together, which rusted out the hinge from the inside, and the steel framework to which it once attached.
Thing looks like it had been submerged under the sea for 20 years...the steel is just crumbling!
Before I got to the time/expense of fabricating a new lid up (or fixing this one, which is probably NOT going to happen...), thought I'd check to see if anyone had a broken/busted/cracked FlipPac with a good lid on it.
If your tent is in good shape, I might purchase that from you also.
I agree...it's kind of a long-shot...but figured I'd post here first before fabricating up a replacement out of aluminum.
Thanks so much,
