Nice work. Any pics of how you connected the upper and lower tubes to the firewall? Thanks

These are amazing. It's like you're in my head - I've been sketching for at least a week on a set almost exactly like these - even down to the LED in the side/tube coming off the grille.

Amazing work!

No pics, but there's a strip of flat bar bolted where the factory fender bolts up. They're welded to that.

Thanks. The wiring is a took some figuring. The factory wiring switches the ground on the one used as a marker light, to make it blink also. It got a little confusing.

I've been back a few times now checking out your pictures. I will tell you that when I build mine, I will blatantly rip off your design.
I'd like to have a little wider flare though for on the street, and have the flare part removable (where you have the cardboard template pictured).

Thanks.

That's a cutting disk. It's a random internet photo. I added it to the shop accident thread. I've known of it happening to a few people, so I take those things pretty serious.
