Thanks Bruce, appreciate it.

Answerman - The thought has crossed my mind. I guess it depends on how accurately I can reproduce them. The first one is being made out of 20 gauge steel so I can get a feel of what's involved. And as a replacement for one of the bad ones I have here. Then I hope to find others in the area to use as test fit candidates.

I did check out a local metal reseller and they had something with a chrome finish. After making the first one I thought of getting a piece of that chrome sheet in scrap and see how it holds up to being shrunk, wheeled and heated. Still in the planning stages here as it is pretty warm in the garage right now.
