I made my own custom one out of 1/2" thick aluminum sheets from Home Depot (1/4" thick). It costed $5 and looks really good...better than anything else I have seen out IMO! I will try to post some pics soon,

Thanks for the repleys. I was kind of thinking of making my own gaurd. And just wanted to be able to see some other ideas. Also, motoman393 thanks for having the info for fixing pipes on your web sight. I went and made a jig today and fixed my header pipe, it worked great.

I think the black melted fabric look on a pipe is attractive.

KC husky,

That header repair trick works great huh? I fixed a HUGE crease in my WB high boy and it took 25 mins with and Oxyacetylene torch and 80 PSI of pressure. Later,
