Fender Brace DIY

Post by Bryton. on Tue Apr 24, 2012 8:18 pm

I thought i would post this to get the DIY section going. cyclops

So i built some fender brace's since i can build them for free since my uncle can get me free steel. So i build these, they are made out of 1/8" plate and 7/8" round tubing. they are super beefy

Plates:


Pipe squished and welded on:


Cleaned up and primed and painted:


Comparison:


Overall i am vary happy with how they turned out.

Next week when I come home we could measure the mounts or something like that. My car probably won't be ready anyways until the cruise on Sunday.
