Poker in the rear….

So, after yesterdays second tip over, the right side rear sub-frame and side bag rack were bent inwards requiring a little backyard ingenuity. We had to bend the rear rack back out, and we needed to apply some brute force…and what we needed was a strong lever, say, like a steel fireplace poker! 

Poker inserted into the rear....subframe rack that is.

 

After the poker was inserted, it was time to apply some brute force, or at least as much force as a doughy IT desk jokey can apply. 

Applying some pressure...

 

The top rack had also been tweaked upward, so we strapped the poker across the back rack and bent it back downward. 

Mission accomplished!

 

OK, so it ain’t perfect, but its way better than it was. The only casualty was a severely bent poker, but at least her rear looks great!
