Tube fenders?

Ok I know I talked about this before but I have a set of stock fenders that are pretty banged up and I wanted to make tube fenders out of them but don't know where to start. Can I see pics of yours. Also of anyone's got like a step by step type thing that would be great.

I have Jeeptubes.com on all 4 corners. They were a great company when I dealt with them, but I've heard issues with orders and customer service as of late.

Sad, because my fenders came out great. Hope if it's true, they can turn it around.

Wow those are really nice I just don't know how to do it by making the whole thing from scratch I think it would be easier to base it off the stock fenders...I'm gonna go make some measurements and tape it off where I want to cut

I used the stock fenders...kind of...I used the inner fender wells and a little of the top sheet metal. Really isn't that hard. Just measure 10x before you cut!!! Lol

Haha yea I'm just doing it because if I don't use the other set of fenders for something there proably gonna end up in the trash so I figured why not try and make something out of the and if I screw up I still have the set on my jeep now.

These are the set at are banged up that I'm gonna base them off of..
