Well it looks like I did something wrong. No surprise there(grin).
Chris I'll try again. Bending the c channel is not impossible but it is a fussy pain in the butt sort of job that many shops won't want to take on. Bending channel forms often requires the use of fillers or special dies to prevent the channel legs from closing in or opening up at the bends. In addition the exact channel you have may not be available today as a lot of extrusions are proprietary and the dies for this one may have been lost with Play Pac. Do you have dimensions of the existing channel? It may be close to a stock extrusion which could be substituted. If you substitute a different extrusion you may need to use a glued on weather seal since the small channel for your existing strip will not be there.
I'm a long way from you being in NJ but I have an extremely talented friend in southern NH who might be able to help you. I'd have to ask him if he's interested before I pass along his number. I'm sure you are aware that a new frame will not be inexpensive but it is certainly doable. This time around replace the piano hinge with an aluminum one also if you do the job.
I tried without success to acquire a derelict Play Pac here in my area before I was fortunate enough to find a Trillium
in very good condition for an amazing price this summer. I just took that camper on a weekend trip to Vermont and then back through New Hampshire for a blacksmithing event. I love it and I'm sure you'll love the Play Pac when you get it finished.
