Indeed, it looks great! Any pictures of the 'inbetween' stages of completing the work?

So the light bar is coming along nicely .took a visit to my local lowes and picked up some 1 1/4 conduit pipe which is 1.5 in OD . After visiting several shops in the area i was unable to get anyone to do the correct bend . My father had a old trampoline leg in the scrap pile that had 2 of the correct bends on it sooooo. after some cutting welding and a little putty work im left with this .....

will still need some primer and paint. but it measures up perfect to the pdf on the motorpool sight and lines up to the bolts on the windshield frame. cost was about $20 for metal $12 for a roll of mig wire and maybe another $10 for misc stuff .not bad for under $50..... anyway more pics to come
