Bend 'em cut 'em weld 'em:

Actually it should be:
Strip the galvinised coating, bend 'em, cut 'em, weld 'em.
Much more of a pain grinding/wire brushing the galvinised stuff off after you've got a small curved shape. Don't ask me how I know.

Got an Suzuki Intruder headlight for free. Same as Savage except has metal shell and different mounting hole spacing.
Welded on new mount to make it fit Savage spacing:

Good to see something of value from Ikea. I went to check one out, didn't dig it, turned around to leave and got told I'd hafta walk all the way through the store to exit. Im not big on turnstiles, not being a COW, and not being allowed to leave by the nearest exit feels a bit pushy to me. Unless that policy change s, I don't think I will be going back.

My family would have been mortified. They were embarrassed enough at the scene I made..Had I been alone, it would have worked out different. I can't say that there Was a turnstile, I just mentioned I dislike them. They definitely had employees " Guiding the way"  , former frustrated and constipated hall monitors from school, no doubt.

Yep with you on Ikea, never go there for same reasons even though I have one round the corner from me.
I say this grill came from Ikea, but it came to me via a skip (dumpster).
I've become a big fan of skips since I started welding - I find the prices and customer service very good.

Ah dumpster finds, love em
I remember fondly when I lived on the same block with a bicycle shop, much Dumpster diving

JOG I probably would have REALLY embarrassed your family lol
Unless their employees wanted to physically restrain me, I woulda gone out the door I wanted too
"sir, you can't go that way"
"Oh no? watch me"  Grin
