Default Re: Pea soup headlight

SB on the top side of the small can I will have 2 shaped sheet metal mounts that reach up to where the fork legs, struts and spring assembly bolts together. I'll also have a mount of some kind coming up from where the fender bolts to the steering tube attaching to the bottom side of the small can...this will be where the angle adjustment is made and secured.

How do I cut the cans?

I use curved scissors similar to what is pictured below, I get them for $1.50 at a surplus store and they work just great on thin sheet metal too. Before cutting I mark up with either a fine sharpie or tool makers ink and a fine scribe. To dull the edges of a fresh cut I use my Dremel with a fine stone bit then I finish off with some fine sandpaper...freshly cut cans have edges sharp as a razor!
