Default homemade fenders

so i decided i was getting tired of getting soaked in wet streets so i made some fenders out of a 2 liter plasic bottle and a milk jug

now my front fenders are completly made of plastic but i used a rear rack for the rear fender and added a peice of milk jug for added protection cause the rear fender didnt cover the tire completly

on the front i cut the 2 litter bottle in half then cut the bottom and top out of one of the halfs for the frame fender and the other half i cut the bottom off and the top i left a little curve in there i mounted them with zip ties and punced holes in with a hole office hole punch i beleive these will stand up to vibration and if somehow they get jammed in the tire well hopefully they are flexable enough to not lock the front tire i really dont see that happening anyway they are very sturdy especially with the curve in the fork mounted one

now for the rear fender was very simple i cut out a peice of milk jug to fit and zip tied it on then bent a little edge up on the bottom in case it hit the tire it would just rub and not get caught even if it did get caught it would just bend in and rub the tire theres no way it would jamm the rear tire

just giving people ideas if any of you think these would be unsafe let me know i they seem perfectly fine to me

if i thpught these were unsafe i woudnt have put them on and it didnt cost anything i had zipties and plastic bottles
