This weekend I built some floor boards and some hand guards and mounted another light.
I built my floor boards from 1in square tubing, and some flat expanded metal. They are 16 inch long and 11 wide. I did remove the factory foot pegs to get them on. I did have to get creative around the brake pedal and I had to bend the lever also. I welded the floor boards straight to the side of frame. I had to turn the welder down twice because I kept blowing holes in the frame and having to weld them up. I thought the frame rails where thicker than what they are.
The hand guards I built out of 11 ga 6inch wide and 10 inch long. I used a log splitter and some custom attachments for bending plate I had laying around. Then just a welded them to the pieces of 1 1/2 angle I have between my handlebars. The handlebars have tabs the angle bolts to and the angle holds my light bar. I did have to use some 1/2 in rod to go from the angle to the hand guards.
The new led light I mounted is a led flood light with 5 led bulbs. I mounted it to a tab on the rear rack above the muffler. I wired it the same switch my front light bars is on.

I also painted my 4x4 cover. I cleaned it up and was about to clean up the 4x4 part then I painted with rubberized undercoating

Chasecoker, how did you wire up the light bar...just tie into the high beam and ground it or did you do something more sophisticated? How is the NAPA light bar working out? Pics?

Pulled all the front plastic off and proceeded to straighten the front bumper and racks from a previous owner wreck of some type. Managed to get everything more or less straight and then even get all the bolts & mounts to line-up well enough to reassemble the framework. Ground/Sanded off the rust and painted with Rust-Oleum Automotive. At least it's better than it was and shouldn't rub the plastic nor continue to rust.

Next step, back on with the plastics.
