I think polished with some bead blasting as trim would look awesome

That's a great look - haven't decided on the finish yet, paint or powdercoat, polishing is another option and I like the way the trim looks from bead blasting, very subtle. I wonder how well that would stand up to humidity. Do you know if they seal that some how?

Yeah I'm sure u can seal but I'm guessing it's all about the quality of the material

Awesome. How did you mount the fender up front? I assume you're also going to do some struts further back?

I can see you've got something going through the bottom of the fender and into the frame...

I welded a bracket to the swingarm and made a reinforcing bracket for the fender, joined the two with a bolt. You can see it in this pic.
