Here they are, side by side. You can see that the release pins don't line up in the same place, so extra holes had to be drilled. I made my cuts using a combination of table saw and Rockwell BladeRunner.

This shows how I notched out the RAP4 stock so the Duostock bottom would fit inside it. I then use a heat gun to soften the pointy bits of the RAP4 stock and bend them until they followed the Duostock curves.

I used Plastic Weld to put it all together, then a sanding block to clean it up.

The finished product. Took a lot of tweaking to get the slider adjustment pin to engage the RAP4 rail I ended up putting tape on the tank side of the rail so that it would be pushed down tight to the pin when the tank is in place. You can still see the nipple on top where I drilled a new hole for pin access- I need to ream that out next time I paint it.
