Thanks Steve.
Inside of the box is flat, as it is double skinned.

On the home run now. It's a good idea to have a 'Shakedown' run. The problems are ironed out before paint. The color suits :cool:

The bedside was done by hand and I haven't a machine that could shape the panel like I wanted to achieve. The first two mudguard sections had the help from an Eckold for the shrinking. Trying not to...

I think its worth a go to try something that might not work. Panel steel's cheap, my time is my time and you learn some things. Doing it in separate pieces can open up another can of worms :)

A paper pattern of the part gives me the flare edge. I vivid a line on the inside and that gives me the spot I need to block. With my 100mm pipe, I lay the panel over it and block the line. You've...

This the start of the LHS bedside. I started by plasma cutting some 3mm plate that will become the former for the wheel arch. As I had the RHS to copy, I ran the blank through the rollers until it...

That late model dash looks right at home with your modifications. Can you still change the glass without removing the dash?

Thanks Christopha. We live on a rural property 5 mins out of town. Nearest neighbor is 200 yards away, but he's into cars, so it's all good.

Thanks Eugene. Probably make a new one. The first is easy, as you just build it. The second is harder because of being a copy. If I chop the RHS one up, I loose the reference of the shape. Still have...

Thanks Matt.
Not quite like your sketch's, but close. The guard evolved as I was building the wire buck, especially around the rear section.

This is the rear half. Same tools used :cool:. Positioning of the wheel arch took some thought. With the wire buck positioned either on the inside or outside, gave you two different positions.

This is the first two pieces of the mudguard. I made a die for the nibbler to produce a J swage. This swage makes the mudguard sit tight in against the bedside. I did a few test pieces to determine...
