    Hello guys!

    I've seen a lot of people who wanna make a mudguard, but don't know how. This thread may help!

    You'll need:
    -Knife/razor
    -Some material
    -Something to make holes

    Let's get started.

    First, you need to make a plan. Here is mine:


    Than use it as a template on your material.

    Mark it up!


    Cut it out.


    It may won't fit at first, so use something like a file for it!



    Perfect.


    Mark the positions for the holes.


    I used an old soldering iron to make the holes.


    I added some carbon foil to make it look a bit better.


    And this is the final product. It may doesn't look like a 3d printed 20 dollar something, but it is perfect for it's usage.




    Cheers
    David

    Looks good! A great material to use to make fenders are the pliable cutting boards like these.
