Thanks Luke.Looks good WFTiger!
I love it being long too but that hole is driving me crazy.I like the guard being long, but understand about that hole bugging you... I really need to get back into my build, it's bugging me!
Not any more but I know people that do.You weld? Patch it like you would if it wasn't chrome. Then polish it. Me, I'd put a small chrome acorn nut on it... or a row of them...
