    I cut them from a piece of alu flat bar - probably 1/2"x1/16", and drilled the hole in the perspex, mounted with a rubber grommet (to stop cracking). The other end is mounted to an indicator panel screw, with a spacer (nylon nut) to get out of the reccess.
    The stock lower, center bolt mounts into the plastic housing and is not very firm, the braces stop it flexing there.

    hehehe... I'm torn between doing it myself... and paying for it to be done professionally (the paint job that is). my CS was just rattle can blacked... that "fusion" stuff krylon makes.

    for the pin striping I'm sure I can handle it w/some white/reflect tape in approximate (varying) widths. not sure what I'll listen to when I do that. maybe changes by Bowie?

    Heading East, Da UP...Lake Michigan.

    First solo ride....1600 miles in 3 days Up to open the cottage in Ontonagon, MI. A staff member at the Big Mac bridge rode my bike over. Second trip I rode...on the grate. Did not care much for the experience but worth it to ride the UP
