    They don't have to be milled and slotted, etc. Hopefully you can get the idea of a design. Take a piece of carboard or posterboard and make a pattern that will fit your boat, then trace it out on aluminum plate and cut.

    Good Luck!

    The rear transom plates if fitted tightly to the pump can actually help support/brace the rear of the pump. In my third example on the Daytona, I basically have all four. Starting at the rear, (1) closely fitted transom plates, (2) Angle running side to side and bolted to the stringer, to the pump and a couple of bolts thru the angle from the transom cover, (3) a mid pump brace where the front of the pump bolts to the suction housing and (4) a brace at the front of the suction housing. Most anything you can conceive will help.

    After making your patterns all you need is a common jigsaw with metal cutting blades and some files.

I made it, did like gear said, with some calculated measurements, I transferred everything to a pc of plastic like a for sale sign, drew up the cutouts to mimmic the front motor plate, and went to cuttin! Don't worry lupo, u can do one! I did mine with a jig saw, drill press, and like gear said, a file! Btw keith, the purple looks a lot better in the sun, pics don't do it justice.

    Prolly be a pain in the azz to cut out the flames to match your rig!Luop, mine is 1/4" aluminum, 3/8" would be better if u can get it imo. In fact I took so much meat outta mine that WT and I were discussing the functionality of it, I really don't need it with the intake being fully bolted all the way around, mine is still functional, but I mainly built it so I could mount my water reg, and have a quick disconnect for my plumbing, I welded -8, and -10 bungs in mine for water and fuel lines.
