Default Mounting plate for w/s washer bottle on FC

Rebuilt the r/f battery tray on my 1987FC today and noticed two fairly large cracks in the metal plate that the washer bottle is fastened to.
I did a temp reinforcement with some alum angle. ( have more important projects right now to deal with )
If that plate breaks on the highway the bottle and ( more importantly ) steel plate will be exactly in the path of the r/f tire.
If you have an FC you may want to look at that plate carefully. On my 1987 the cracks are mostly hidden by the washer bottle.
