New Kings Rooftop?

I made an ally block to fit neatly inside the tube, I think it was 20x20x20mm and tapped an m6 hole in one side.

Then i drilled a 7mm hole all the way through the outer frame, aligned with the center of the busted beam. Then drilled just the outside face to 11mm so a cap head bolt could slide through and sit inside the frame, nicely hidden away.

Pried the broken beam up enough to slip the ally block in then let it spring back into position.

Cap head bolt through the outer frame and into the ally block. I had to drill a small hole in the beam just past the block to shove a tool down, to stop the block sliding in too far while i did the bolt up.

Been rock solid ever since.
That's a clever idea, better than anything i'd been thinking.

Cheers!
