ABS Sensor Guards
I was eyeing the Touratech ABS sensor guards for my 2013 Glee, but $60 for the set just seems ridiculous for a couple bolts, spacers, and aluminum. I figured I could make some, and while at Home Depot, picked up some aluminum angle stock for $4. Cut a couple of pieces to 1-1/2 inch long and notched one end. Rounded off the corners with a sanding drum and smoothed the edges with some 400 grit sandpaper.
For the longer bolts, got lucky and was able to use 2 of the 6 I replaced from the motor mount bracket when I put on my engine guards. The spacer on there is plastic and will be replaced with alloy spacers I found at aluminumspacers.com for about $7 shipped. They are 3/4" long, 3/4" OD, and 5/16" I'D (8mm bolt will fit). Not bad for $12 worth of materials and an hour of my time.
The front one could be a tad longer, so I may make another eventually. Right now, my next project are some removable extensions for the factory hand guards.
