yup I made a aluminium liner plate inside the fender too, works great, the rear tire touched it a few times ... so it was a good call ... I also made my own indicator lights ... I couldn't see the point or justify 400$ for the LED strip ... so I made my own ...Those holes kick my butt. After making a template and drilling many practice holes in the left over fender I finally nailed it.
It was worth it though. To tell the truth that fender is what I'm most proud of. Underneath that is a skid plat that I welded to the frame so when I it a big bump the tire wouldn't take out the led harness. Not only did I install a 1 1/2" lower kit but I lowered the fender also. Didn't like the way it set up so high.
