Here are a couple of things I'm working on for my next video.....you can generate a lot of shape with simple hand tools.

Ignorant means under-educated, and is not necessarily an insult, especially when the foo shits..... My plan is to apologize for my comments about the time GWB aplogizes for the deaths and injuries of hundreds of thousands of people. Deal with it....the same way I deal with most of the crap I don't like on this forum... I ignore it and move on. We all think differently...

with a little shot bag, mallet and english wheel thrown in for good measure.

Thanks, John www.ghiaspecialties.com

Sweet work!

I know that opinion is divided on motorcycle fenders on volksrods, but here in MN, I figure a case can be made for them.

I figure when I get mine, I'll want em, but thats just my take on it.

I'll have to look into buying a copy of yer dvd, but I gotta run it past the War Dept first!

lol.

Thanks guys...(insert smily emoticon) I've been trying to think of the best way to attach a fender like that to a spindle without developing cracks in the fender from all the shaking. Maybe a frame welded to the perimeter of the fender made from 1/4"X1/2" flat bar bent to fit with a fan shaped bracket coming from the spindle up to the inboard edge of the fender.

Masterx's rod has motorcycle fenders...

I don't know if this is or is not the way to do it, but it's the first good photo of it being done in ANY fashion that I have found.

I am admittedly new to all of this, but I think it looks pretty good.

That is interesting... I wonder how those brackets will hold up over time?

been wondering that m'self.

I wish I knew enough to make an educated guess, but then wishing that is the first step obtaining the knowledge.
