so i though i would get some actual progress done as the brat is going to be purely a toy by the end of the summer.not truly done,adding pieces to the bottom later on and some other mods with the front of the brat anyway.but,accomplishment is accomplishment ,so i thought i would share,

here we have part of a junkyard bumper(my own mounts) and some modded fenders,whatcha think?

Hmmm now thats a neat idea... fold em, dont cut em. Saves you from having a sharp edge and wont let em rattle around as much.

what it needs is another piece just like that with some bars going down holding it just below that one. I think that will make it look "beefy'er"

Nice welding BTW :)

it actually had some double bars that were split in the middle below those.i sacrificed them for the clearance i wanted in front of the tires.they may reappear at a later date for the skidplate,in a different configuration. and beefy is not what i care about anymore.i know this bumper will do the job of stopping something if need be. it is 2x2 1/4 inch wall tubing.after shedding some pounds from the other bumper (see below),monstaru now has some more spring in her step.there is a huge difference in weight.it actually seems like she is sitting higher when you are in the cockpit.i do have some other pieces planned , but had to get her streetable as she is my daily driver.and only had monday afternoon and tuesday.
