clamped sheet to a 1 1\2 pipe then rolled it around pipe by hitting with rubber mallet and heating it with torch.then mounted guard on headpipe to fine tune shape leaving 1\4in air space between guard and headpipe.after i had finished shaping guard so airspace was even all the way around guard.pulled it off pipe and drilled holes to help cooling.finally sanded and polished
