Fabrication help. Simple

I am installing this amp and speakers on a cruiser and I need an L bracket. I have two Z's that came with the speakers, but because where I need them mounted I need an L. Went to ACE, Home Depot and an auto parts store. None of them had what I'm looking for. HD was the closest, but the L's they had were very thin and the wholes were too small.

If you can either help bend these Z's to L's or you have the ability to cut and bend medal, please let me know.

Steel or aluminium?

If you dont have air/cut off wheel, hacksaw, chizel/hammer, or cutting tool you can bend the metal until it breaks. Use a vise to help start/continue. Hold the part you wish to break @ the clamp edge and use a hammer to initiate bending/breaking.

Well not looking to break these in to L.. or I'd loose mounting wholes.. But yea, if I had a good table mounted Vice and some locking pliers, I'd probably be done already.

Which is why I was hoping someone did fabbing out of their garage or had access to do something very simple. Worse case would cause for some cutting of two pieces and drilling two wholes.

Hope no welding is required.. Here's the pic of what I have.. vs what i need.

These are the Z.. If I could take the short part of the Z and bend it to an L.. Or if anyone has some L's laying around. Pref about 1/8" or so thick and pref high polished or chromed.

if those are chromed its gonna crack the chrome when u bend it to the angle u want.. but that looks very easy, 5 minutes in a vise and it can be bent

put em in a padded vice, dont use heat as that will screw the chrome , and bend em slowly. slow may not damage the chrome although you are asking a lot of it to bend that much. but if you do it right, you might get by with it, might not. prolly not but worth the effort to try and save it first.
