Homemade Windjammer

I made a "windjammer" blocker behind the front seats to cut down on the reverse wind when going down the highway. Took some mesh cloth that was given to me, added some brass grommets that I picked up at a fabric store, cut to size, and tied in place with clothes line rope. I run a bikini only most of the year so its great when ferrying to my favorite trails at highway speeds. Best part is it still lets air though so if the doors are on and windows up you still get fresh air in the cockpit.

Well, after getting concepts from a previous post from a member in the UK and looking at the Tomb raider's skid plate, I decided to go ahead and draw it up on AutoCad and get one fabricated.




1. Here's the pieces just getting it back from the shop




2. Sanded/etched, primed and 2 coats of topcoat





3. Installed onto the bumper and frame, the finish product

Will punch holes later for lights......

That skid looks really good, what are the dimensions, or do you have any plans for it?

I drew the plans on CAD and it's at the office. I'll swing by tomorrow and get some dimensions.
