homade trimatic crossmember?

Image: 

Has anyone made a gearbox crossmember (trimatic)?
for the centre bit, are they just flat steel with a long sideways slot, or are they 2 mounting holes?
Perhaps if someone can post up a pic of a standed tri crossmember with measurements, i can then work out if shorting a stock member will be safer

One thing I have seen with engineers is that if you can source a factory item already used in another manufacturers vehicle then they "tick and flick" no problem. They rather trust some weak pressed steel bracket designed by a computor to a profit margin rather than trust a heavy duty welded bracket made by an experienced welder or tradesman. Get your dimensions or rough out something from scrap then prowl a few wreckers/pick-a-part etc until you find something that will work, unmodified, even upside down.
Homemade, welded, billet, modified are words engineers and roads corporations hate. "Sourced from Landcruiser/Ford" or "Genuine factory" seem to smooth out problems be it with brakes, steering columns etc. Lots of different dimension vehicles to choose from out there, hope this helps.

I did make a cross-member, and it defently looked homemade. used 5mm plate
hopefully, the stock hq/hz cross-member will be wide enough
