10, 25, 55mm, larger ones cut with a hole saw.

some guys have all kinds of trouble cutting holes, but very slow RPM and cutting oil solves most of the problems. much less heat too, makes your hole saws last 10X longer. you know when you have the right combination, the shavings often come out in nice long curls, and the piece is cool enough to handle without gloves.

so i have two new pieces, four new pieces must be way mo betta...

this stuff all cut from scrap steel. if you enjoy fabbing parts for your ride, never walk by any usable metal scrap ya can liberate without stealing it.

fine tune the fit a little, then these will be ready for paint.
