day ten?

in this section i am building a license plate mount that attaches to the rear axle. its layed out on .080 6061 al sheet. the axle hole is 20mm .
here it is with all three holes drilled and the sides folded up. i used a small pan brake to bend the sides up. make sure to allow for your bend radius
i built this swedging die that you clamp down on the sheet metal to give it extra strength and cut weight.
here is the mount all welded togeather for the plate backer i used .032 al to cut weight since its not really structural. i will be selling these in the pangea speed store soon, feel free to email me and i will whip one up for you if your interested.
