    Will be drilling and bolting the existing angle iron through the panel as well as running some additional angle iron perpendicular to the existing and parallel to, and as close to the channel where the panel sits on the bottom

    You will have to let us see the finished product. I ran some metal c-channel down mine just as you did. I ran it to just above where it fits into the track and bolted it about 2" from the end. Though not nearly as often, the dang thing still pops out on a really hot day! That poly will flex right at the bottom. Crazy!

    I did the exact thing you are.....every panel including the back. I was so over a panel bending and some popping that I just said $#$% it. and did all of them. Excited to see how they work out. I also fabricated 4 "L" brackets for the rear channels on the inside. I think mine take a lot of abuse because they are not always full and the sloshing of the bags does a number on them. That's the only thing I can think of. Hope it works out!

    The panel popping is more from the bottom track not being tall enough. If you can replace those with taller c-channel it will help a lot.

    Mine don't pop in my mojo but my 1300's are long and end up tucking under the seat space instead of getting fat wide and popping panels.

    Thanks for the thoughts and ideas gents…..

    I have a few things working against me here…. Mostly the lead ballast under the rear bags which brings the bags up higher and potentially putting even more pressure on the panels….

    That being said my panels popped with stock bags and no lead, and of course that just continued with the larger bags and ballast….

    I am going to not only strengthen up the bottom of the panels with some additional angle iron, but will also devise something for the lower channel the panels sit in, I am debating on a taller channel the whole length or several L brackets along it….

    Follow along for the journey….

    Of course, I was going to let the ideas percolate while I swapped out my stock board racks (bungees) to the Roswell Triton 2’s I bought, and that has devolved into a nightmare with 5 of the 8 bolts coming out “easily”, while 2 rounded heads and one snapped off the 5/32 hex tool inside of it, and that was after heating them up significantly to lessen the effect of the thread locker…..

    Thankfully the weather is not great so I have some time to get this done but to some up this day in a word i would say….

    FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

    Good thing I enjoy this stuff !

    I know all to well the bolts on the board racks.
    Roswell uses red loctite on steroids. I changed mine out to socket caps instead of button heads. I had to drill 2 of them when swapping tines and heat and vise grip the remaining piece out. What I nightmare, but it was winter sso just a reason to be in the shop.

    Well…. I feel like I accomplished something today….

    Yes, I had to drill the remaining three bolts out, and will look to replace that countersunk Allen head hardware with something less prone to this….

    Usually getting them heated up with a torch will loosen up that loctite but these last three were a pain in the ass…. Though just to give me the middle finger, once i drilled them out 2 of the 3 unscrewed by hand and the last one needed more heat persuasion
