    Made a jig and heated the flat stock for the radius ,1st. Then Found it was quicker and more consistent to have the place I buy steel, put it in a rebar bender. It's two pieces welded together.

    After I built the AC guard. I found one at a show, its almost an exact replica. I made it from a picture in a Old AC loader manual. AC also made a WD series guard out of tubing. I liked the looks of this one better.
