    Ramp flap replacement?

    Hi all
    Anyone know where I could potentially make my own ramp flap replacement from?
    I have a Monday Night Football ramp that is approx 14 x 8 cm that cannot be replaced but by either a similar sized ramp or new one I should be able to make one
    Does anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks in advance

        most buy a RFM ramp flap from us, you get several ramps out of the Large Flap material

            I use .200 316 stainless shim stock and cut and drill my own then polish up.
            A lot more expensive than normal stuff but I like the result.

                  Yep, you need to use spring steel, not just any sheet metal.

                      Not in that gauge, hobby shop has always been my go-to for light stuff, sorry.

                            Postage from Marco was $56! I had mine sent to a friend in the USA who combines it with other stuff I get from there. Sorry mate
