Stainless Rail Repair

I purchased a used '71 Katama that has chrome-zinc "T" fittings on the rear stainless railings. Needless to say they are junk. I purchased new stainless steel "t"'s
and got the other ones off by using a chipper breaking them. However the new ones won't slide on over the bends at the ends. Do I have to cut the railing?

Bob, I did some work to my 72 Katema (see photo in Cetacea). Had the same problem with the railing. Yes you do have to cut the rails but it's no big deal...Just insert a piece of round stock inside the rail you cut..I don't remember the size but its easily available, I got mine at Home Depot. Put on your new fittings and it works fine. Email me if I can be of more help. I ain't no expert but maybe my trial and error can save you some time! -Ger
