Glad you got it made. I know what I posted was a different brand, but thought it might give you some idea of the implement attachment area. I'll be looking for the build. Have a good one.

Nice job. Looks like it'll get the job done. Wish I had a way to bend thick metal.

Metal was not bent, cut a 2" piece and welded it to the side arms. then the thicker front section was added
