We didn’t want that strap iron look that so many have used for fender supports so we used round stock to get that retro look.
We chose 5/8” cold rolled steel for the rear support arms and ½” for the front fenders – both fenders are totally removable. Fenders are the Law in BC
First we had to buy a Mig Welder, model 211 Miller to handle the light weight 16 gauge fenders. The welder was awesome.
Welding two fenders together to accommodate for the 18” wide rear tires
Front fender supports – making sure that they are level
Welding the bracket mounts to the rear axle
We’re now ready to disassemble the Rod, catalog all the parts and get it ready for paint – Rick at 360 Fabrication in Abbotsford will be doing the Paint work and air brushing. 360 Fabrication have won many awards for their professional workmanship. We’re happy they are involved with the finishing touches.
Next on our up date you will see the beginning of the total Rod assembly. We’ve been looking forward to this for some time now.
