It won’t hold too much water because of the side cut out but after a washing I pop the plug and sand and junk flood out. I live on a dirt road though.Thanks everyone.
Yes, Cory I purchased the hardware kit another $60. Very well worth it. I had to clean up the front pins but it was better than making them myself plus the rear bracket. I didn't have to do anything to the rear bracket and its made of Stainless Steel. Bolted right up and no adjusting.
Ytman, good idea covering the bottom also, didn't think about it blasting the bottom. AND the drain hole, I was thinking, that thing is going to fill up with water if riding in the rain.
I'm sure creating the cutout was a nightmare without the template. I started on the small side and kept working towards my marks from the pattern/template trying to leave as much material as possible.
