That's my problem, I'm cheap in the worst possible way, spending money like a drunken sailor on bling and not on the important stuff.

Sent you a PM too.
Yeah, I figured it would be about $20 per hour saved and you'd end up with a nicer product. But since you've got a TIG welder and you are definitely handy with the grinder give it a shot.

I've got a set of the Mecasystem brackets at home, those are the ones that RMS sells. I can take some detailed pictures for you this weekend so you can build something similar, you don't want your fender coming loose and those are Dakar tested.
