I do still have the brackets you are talking about. They are pretty bent up, but you could probably bend em back to be functional. I would guess that if you were to do that, the bling plate would not fit on exactly straight. Anyway, I'd be willing to let em go in exchange for a beer at one of the socials, but I see you are down in southern cal, so that probably won't work. If you want them and want to pay shipping, I'll send them to you.
