Default "Mystery" Mod

OK I know sometimes I go overboard with my Modding but... I wash my car a lot and I was tired of ending up with bloody knuckles every time. So I did this mod... can you spot it?

scroll down for answer

OK give up here is the secret......

One day while making my air intake box I had some thin sheetmetal left over soooo. I cut a piece of cardboard and bent it at 90 degrees and started cutting it down slowly so it fit on top of those two stupid bolts that go from the wheel well and stick up into the lower inside part of the fender that I always cut my knuckles on while trying to get out trapped dirt. When I got it cut down to fit I just copied the shape to the sheetmetal and made these covers (one each side).

After making sure it would fit I painted it black on both sides. When It was dry I just put it in place and ran a small bead of black silicone around the edge to permanently hold it in place and YAY no more cut knuckles.

The whole DIY took about 20 minutes and the sheetmetal was free. I did this a couple of years ago and some of you may have seen this before but I'm happy to report that 3 years later it's still protecting my knuckles.
