Reworked headlamp brackets / fork ears


Reworked headlamp brackets - been wanting to do these for awhile.

I really like the graceful shapes and contours of the stock units and the way they throw off highlights & shadows - just wanted to see them cleaned up, thinking they'd give the Bonnie a little more old-skool cool.

FYI... labor intensive, involving stripping of stock parts, waterjet cutting various steel plugs, machining, welding, grinding, finishing, etc... compound curves are challenging. Wanted to keep these as much steel and as little filler as possible, and did. Still just a little bit of refining to do but pretty much there. Satin automotive polyurethane finish, these will involve core exchange for stock units in good condition.
