    Nothing new here, but quick and easy tool box. 1170 Pelican, some aluminum strips and some bolts/nuts. Works great for me.

    Thanks for the idea!!!!
    A while ago I bought some bits and pieces from an inmate and I could never figure out what the part below belonged to..........I looked at your thread and AH HA! The allen wrench is out of my tool kit and fits right into the end. :D
    What a great resource this site is!! Thanks Baldy! :clap

    Pretty boring here with snow on the ground. Made an oil cooler guard from flat aluminum and angle iron. Mounted with industrial strength velcro until I see if it blocks too much air or not. If the velcro holds ok, I might just leave it. No new holes. [​IMG]

    I was going to make a headlight guard too, but on closer inspection, it has the 3m clear film on the headlights.

    Nice thread, there's some amazing work here.

    I would like to know what size feet you have to require a gearshift extender, definitely larger than me! :)

    This didn't require any great tooling, but I felt it was important, none-the-less. I made a screen that fit inside the snorkel to prevent the mice from climbing in and building a nest in my air box. Wish I could post a pic, but I'm not thaaaaaat smart.

    Used 7 inch round clear headlight protectors. These were sold years ago and used primarily to protect car headlights while driving gravel roads. They were popular mods for folks driving the Alcan Highway. I used the stock PIAA plastic covers, cut the flat centers out of them, and mated the car light protectors to them. Several seasons ago I busted one of my eyes covers and ended up using the remaining good one as a mold and made 2 fiberglass inserts. The key is using a stock light cover that fits/attaches well and building the concave inserts.
    Molds could be plastic bowls. styrofoam, tin foil, anything that gives you the desired final shape. Hope this helps. Fite
