Well there is my build thread, and all the pictures I've ever taken of it are in the link in my profile.

I'm glad I could finally participate in this thread, really wanting to build more stuff now.

Man that looks good! A few questions for you. How heavy is the pipe and how did you bend it? Did you draw up any plans you wish to share?

Hey, we used 1 1/2" tube .095wall and my dad has a tubeing bender so we used that, and about the plans we dont have any, it started out as a simple bumper and we just kind of kept going. We used cardboard paper to get our shapes and taped them together to get the look we wanted.

Here is a shot of my "doorless" mirror.




Sorry for the mud.

All I did was use a preformed 1/2 conduit elbow from the HD.
I inserted a 3/8" nut into one end and bent some tabs over with a chisel and created my own nutsert.

Put a 3/8 x 2" bolt up through the hinge.

This thing works like a charm.

Oh man, did I say mud.

That is actually a new color of paint that I am trying out. If you look, you can see where I got it on the body too!!
