MARTINSR I did a little filler work on the tank of my brothers bike. But taking more time is mocking up the fender to take a photo for him to be sure the shape is right. I ended up adding a piece of cardboard to the edge to bring forward the rear a little.

tech69 got some new tools in the mail and will immediately be put to use. My steck straight seam buster came up missing at another shop so I finally replaced it. The copper vise grips are nice for edges. Instead of vise gripping a flat piece of copper onto an edge it's all one piece. Very nice for welding the edge of a pinch flange.

Also put an hour into my bike. Blocking and reapplying filler here and there. Smooth sailing and almost ready for final prime.

Rip VW I was frugal today. I was wondering what I would use to couple the 1/2 round bar pedal linkage to each end. I had a couple a light weight heims but ditched that idea for something simplier and frugal.

I dug in the scrap box again and came out with two pieces of 1/8 steel plate each about 3 inches by 4 inches. I drilled a hole in one end of each and rounded the corners. Next I will cut a 1/8" slot about a inch deep in the end of the 1/2" rod. I will slide the plate into the slot and weld it. I will be able to set the bar attachment position on the pedals to ensure enough travel.

Back to the scrap bin tomorrow for a couple of more pieces of plate to do the other ends.

No photos today I left the phone in the house.

tech69 you fab those fenders up?

I didn't do much today but finally edited a video of an old job I helped on. I can't wait to edit a metal fab one once my bike is done. Anywho, here's the video

MARTINSR I got the front fender trimmed down to more closely match the rear on my brothers fenders.

John long We need to change the name of this thread. Between making our own headers, using junk frame for shrinker/stretcher stand, and making lowering blocks out of scrap steel we are all pretty frugal. How about "What did you do frugal today!"

They say everyone lives on a bidget. Some are just tighter than others.

I finished my lowering blocks this afternoon and also tested a '56 Buick fuel gauge for a friend. He was pleased to find it was good. Just needs a sender.

Ya know all that steel was once my 23 T coupe frame. I gave $200.00 for that thing back in 2005. After I decided I was going the wrong direction with my 23 I hung it from the wall. A guy bought the front cross member from me and I cut the rear cross member out so I could store it. I been just waiting for the right use for this steel. These two stands fit the bill perfectly. I did buy the bolts at the top of stand but otherwise no steel purchased, all from the left over scrap bin.

You noticed on each stand the device mounted can be removed with 2 bolts, this allows for utility as I can bolt anything to the stands.

Thanks for the compliments!!
