Still trying to figure out my edge former so I whipped this out. I think it turned out incredible... Usually things like this end up as scrap when I touch 'em.
Drew up a shape on a piece of paper real quick, traced it onto some aluminum and hacked it out.
Ran it through the slip roll to give it a bit of a curve and tried it on with some duct tape
Did a little creative measuring... Made some brackets to mount it to the headlight ears, and viola!
I intended to roll the edge with the edge former but I couldnt get it to work nicely on my scraps, so I just rolled a bead all the way around and filed the edges. Now maybe someday I'll start on the tank...
