Is that aluminum? Does it contact the grab rail?  Did you place rubber between?

alu 12"x12"x0.125 thick[1/8"]+3 nylon spacer 1/2"od x 5/16"id x 1/4"long.3 button head screws m5x0.8x25 long.it does not touch grab rail or seat.drilled 3/8"holes for bungee hooks.this fits over the 3 hole cover piece with the nylon spacers in between.keep in mind this set up is for light loads only.if you want a heavy duty set up remove the 3 hole cover and bolt to sub frame using 4 bolt's.
