04-13-2017 07:19 PM Hood holder/horn mount
I did not like the old hood holder and the way I mounted my air horn. So I got a piece of .750 x 1.750 aluminum and machine slots to receive my horns and hood holders.

04-13-2017 07:15 PM Dressing up the steering column cont.
The tapered part near the steering wheel was a little tougher. I started with the same pipe. I machined a collar that matched the upper diameter to mount the turn signal switch and tach that allows their wires to fit inside the stainless steel. The lower part of the tapered piece needed space for the wires to go through. I welded a section of smaller pipe to the base tube and then started to massage the sheet to fit without kinking it too bad. I used my steering column hanger to press the lower end into shape.

04-13-2017 07:12 PM Dressing up the steering column
I got my hands on a sheet of polished stainless steel and decided to dress up my steering column. I formed the lower strait part around a piece of pipe with some duct tape and hose clamps. While it was still clamped I used some stainless steel pop rivets to keep it in place.

My old radiator V bracket was painted and chipped a lot. So as I have a thing for fabricating items out of stainless steel. It is cheaper than chrome plating.
