Here is the fender eliminator I made

I couldn't see spending $50-$100+ for something I can make a ton cheaper, lighter and look better myself, so I made this in about 30 minutes for my new 2012.

The 1"x1" aluminium 90 degree/angle material was about $1.50 a foot at the hardware store. I had to buy in an 8 foot length but I have a use for the rest of it in my garage. So was like $12 for the material, as I already had the tools for cutting, grinding and drilling it all.

I would guess it weights about the same as maybe 3 or 4 empty aluminium soda cans.

I have a small Targa LED bar/strip that will light up the plate.
