Fabricating seatbelt brackets

Tonight I made the first half of the mating bracket for the left outboard seat belt mount.

Then I laid out it's partner...

...and bent it. Unfortunately I realized after making the long bend that I had bent it the wrong way. Fortunately I realized this before making the second bend, so I was able to salvage this bracket by bending it so that it could be used for the right outboard seatbelt mount.

So I quickly laid out another piece of sheet and fabricated one with the bends going the correct way. That's it for tonight. 2 1/2 hours. I've gotta go to work tomorrow so I'd better pick this up tomorrow.
