So....
I have a pedestrian slicer/number plate, and old one that Kent Shaun gave me.
I want to put it on the T Bird, BUT...
The front fender is not the "proper" fender for the bike. This doesn't bother me really, as Im not a purist, per se. In fact, I hope to have the fenders and tank painted over the winter.

Just wondering tho, given that at SOME point, in the unforseeable future, IF I want to find the right fender, do I go ahead and punch holes in this one?

Given the inconsistencies my bike has- namely and most prominently the nacelle and front fender, not to mention the key in the side cover....

Well, what does every body think? Sure would like to complete my vision of this bike and add the number plate.

Most likely anyone that gets the guard after you are done with it will paint it. Two minute job to weld up the holes and finish them.

Does your slicer have a little notch cut out for the fender stay?

Rod,
Good answer! I'm mounting the slicer.

With a small effort, we can re-make the stand-off mounts in the slicer, add a bit of a longer thread, and mount the thing above the fender stays, therefore not having to notch the antique pedestrian slicer. One other issue would be crushing the fender at the "rib". Remaking the standoff mounts will take care of that issue as well.... At least, that's the plan. Punching a hole or two is OK but I don't want to damage the fender otherwise.

I go through stages with mine. Being a UK bike I have the original, sometimes I bolt it on just because I love the look of the shadow it casts as I lean into a bend. Reminds me of old films!
The rest of the time I just have rubber grommets in the holes.
