Replicate what’s already there with new material?

I’m not sure I understand the question?

Replaced old chain stays with identical new 316 stainless ones. Cut the heads off the old ones and used them for backing plates.

Re: how install chain plate

If you can get into the This Old Boat archive there was an article close to the point – somewhere in 2008 I think… Anyway, I was thinking along these lines with my B24 (actually was going to split the lowers and needed new chain plates for the lowers altogether, and was thinking about doing what your describe for the uppers, which is how I ran inti the article some years back…
