    So today has been a day experimenting with 'drape forming' acrylic windows to the fog-light cutouts in my 'Endurance racer' (that's the theme I'm building on anyway) bumper.

    I've only done one side so far but I'm pretty pleased with how the process has worked so far.

    The covers will be rivetted in place, but here's how the first one looks atm.



    Yes, there is acrylic there! It's soooooo clear.



    Follows the contours of the bumper perfectly

    They say that 'Necessity is the mother of invention', and it's a maxim that holds true!

    Our dishwasher broke last week and before it got taken for recycling I salvaged a useful looking piece of galvanised steel from the base of it.


    It's now been 'fettled' with my Jigsaw, Dremel and a hammer to create the perfect bracket to recess the fog-light and provide a mounting point for the shielding to box it in.







    Just got to repeat for the other side now!

    Damn, that's creative! I threw out a broken down water tank but then pulled it back into the garage to strip the brushed, stainless steel panels off it first. Someday, they'll come in handy for a project.

    Good man. My garage contains boxes of hoarded bolts, fixings, sheet metal, wood, leather, etc that I've salvaged. Lots of it has come in handy over the years and saved me money!

    For sure, given the cost of building supplies nowadays, I'm glad I save stuff. I was going to buy a new, windowed entry door but since the last time I bought one, it was $300 and the new one is $1100, I'll just recondition the old, windowed entry door.
